When we buy a brand new bike or car, the question that comes to our mind most is how much mileage that vehicle will get in one liter of fuel. Of course those who have bought bikes or cars know. But have you ever wondered how much mileage a plane gives on one liter of fuel?
As much as we are aware of the mileage of our car or bike, have we ever wondered what the mileage of an aircraft can be? Doesn’t feel. Because there is no need to think in that sense. Even if we travel by plane, we worry about the fare.
How much fuel was burned, how much the plane went in one liter, the general public will have a headache or what! That is the job of the concerned organization. Surely this question will come to your mind. When you think about bike or car mileage, you know a little bit about aircraft mileage.
As we know, most or most cars give mileage of 30 to 60 kilometers per liter. But the bigger the car, the higher the fuel consumption. As a result, mileage will also decrease.
For example, a Boeing 747 consumes 4 liters of fuel per second. In other words, flying one minute consumes 240 liters of fuel for this aircraft. According to Boeing’s website, the 747 aircraft consumes 12 liters of fuel per kilometer. In other words, this aircraft travels a distance of 0.6 km on one liter of fuel. As such, a 12-hour journey consumes 1 lakh 82,600 liters of fuel.
The Boeing plane can carry at least 500 passengers. It can fly at a speed of 900 kilometers per hour. According to various reports, most aircraft consume 3,200 liters of fuel per hour.
The price of jet fuel has risen again in the country. Last month the oil was sold at Rs 60 but this month it has come down to Rs 8.
This information was given by the sources of jet fuel supplier company Padma Oil Limited on Wednesday (November 10).
With this, the price of oil increased by 31 taka or 6 percent in 11 points in one year.
According to Padma Oil sources, the price of jet fuel was Rs 60 per liter in October. Before that it was 7 rupees in August, 7 rupees in July and 63 rupees in June. At the beginning of this year, in January, the price of a liter of oil was 53 rupees.
Before that, in October last year, the price of jet fuel was Rs 48 per liter. In December, it was raised from Tk 2 to Tk 48.
The airlines say that if the price of jet fuel rises frequently in this way, the aviation sector may suffer.
