    I thought someone would have responded by now.
    If I am not mistaken, simply multiply your kilowatts by 1.34, I think, to get hp. Conversely, divide hp by 1.34 to get kw. Your g/hr of fuel consumption should not be a factor for purposes of conversion, as it will be the same for any one sample.

    hello, thanks 4 response .Q this is the specs i am dealing with
    g/ kw-hr 300 engine A
    g/hp-hr 225 engine B
    Considering both the engines r within 50cc the above info seems "miles apart" .Point of note i have noticed engine specs also list there fuel consumption under different specs eg gross power ,intermitant power, continuous power. Comments please. thanks tomo:waving:

    Is there any chance the numbers are reversed?
    By swapping them, then using the conversion stated above, they cross to within 1%.
    Otherwise, idunno.
