depends on your load and speed.
but example: generator set 1800 rpm, 0 load.
the pump transfers about 1200l/hr at rated speed
the engine consumes 50l/hr
so the return flow is 1150L/hr.
now you increase the engine to full load engine consumes 250 l/hr.
so 1200L in, 250L gogo juice consumed so 950L/hr will come out of the return.
all 3500 are using the same pump.

Can anybody help me with max fuel flow rate from Caterpillar 3508 fuel transfer pump? Or may be other CAT engines with same fuel transfer pump?
It is more than 100 liters/hour fuel consumption, but I need to know fuel rate from fuel supply pump
It will be equal to 100 liters/hour + return line flow rate.
