C208 running costs.

Hi all,
This will settle some argument I've had for some time.
Can anyone tell me how much fuel a C208 uses whilst 'turning and burning' on the ground, idling?
Thanks
Pete

Hi, if you believe the ff gauge, then ground idle uses just over 100pph. That's 1.6 pounds a minute...

You need an engineer to tell you the exact amount.

Hope that helps :)

kind regards,
