Where I can find the information about fuel type and fuel consumption for PW 1000G engines family?

    $\begingroup$ It's a commercial jet engine, so it runs Jet-A. Fuel consumption depends on power setting, airspeed, temperature, and pressure. It would probably be more effective to ask about typical fuel consumption for a specific aircraft equipped with PW 1000G family engines. $\endgroup$ – raptortech97 Mar 25 '15 at 14:28
  • $\begingroup$ It may be hard to find fuel consumption, especially since no planes with these engines are in service yet. $\endgroup$ – fooot Mar 25 '15 at 17:37
  • $\begingroup$ To raptortech97 - Jet A, or may be Jet A-1? $\endgroup$ – Y.N Mar 25 '15 at 19:50
  • $\begingroup$ This database has fuel flow information as well as emissions data, but I did not see the PW1000 series (or LEAP) in there yet. It will be operated around the world, so it will be able to use Jet A or A-1. $\endgroup$ – fooot Mar 25 '15 at 20:38

In this presentation from 2009 PW quote savings of 140 gallons on a 500 nm trip. I presume they are comparing it to current engine options such as the IAE V2500.

  • $\begingroup$ I see only "savings", not absolute consumption value. $\endgroup$ – Y.N Jun 11 '15 at 6:53
  • $\begingroup$ @Y.N I have noticed that engine makers tend not post absolute values until they enter operation. Possibly because it is partly dependent on the type of aircraft it's fitted on. $\endgroup$ – collector Jun 11 '15 at 21:21
