Default Fuel Consumption per session?

How much fuel are you guys consuming per 20-30 minute lapping sessions?

Few ideas running in my head right now.

It depends enormously on how hard you push the car and how much power it makes.

I do recall us having a thread on this already, though.

There was a recent thread. Units became Minutes/tank, I got scared and ran far far away...

I wnt through 5 tanks of fuel at Hallett last year. This year I went through less than 3, drove more, and John drove my car for a session or two.

Rover goes through a tank every 95-100 minutes. Theseus (when it last ran at 350whp on E85) would drain the tank in ~40 minutes.

Your mileage will (literally) vary.
