Hello,what does fuel_flow_scalar say. Multiply it by 0.5 and put back the new value and the fuel flow will be halved.In FS SFC (=PPH/net thrust) is constant, but in RL it varies with throttle, temperature and Mach. There is an internal variable called CFF which varies more like RL and if you can make a guage .... then you can tell us all how you did it.Ian
