The way I remember the K-factor adjustment equation is to think of the K as the number of turbine revolutions per gallon. If your calculated fuel used is high you need to increase the number of revolutions per gallon and increase K.

Bill -- We are talking about an RV-12 here not an RV-7 type of aircraft. The RV-12 has a bypass/return form of fuel system with only one fuel flow sensor so the stock K Factor needs to be adjusted to reflect the bypassed fuel.

Thanks - I did not know that - I have deleted the post as it is not relevant.
