Re: water flow GPM per HP of an engine?
Standard cooling water estimate based on max. fuel consumption =
approx. 1 GALLON water PER MINUTE per 10 HP with engine a WOT.
estimate based on consumption rate of high heat value of #2 diesel fuel @ ~138,700 BTUs/gallon
Has 'nothing' to do with 'thermostats'.
