How much fuel is used during a jump in MgT2E?

High Guard page: 17 wrote:10% of the total tonnage of the ship, multiplied by the maximum jump score of the drive

The result of this is the number of tons that needs to be dedicated to jump fuel.

There is of course the added complication of HG2e introducing fuel efficient drives etc.
So it all depends on the TL of the jump drive and the higher TL options you choose for your jump drive if permitted.

Upto thirty percent efficiency.

Doesn't appear to go the other way.

As usual in Traveller: 10% (±tech efficiency) of the jumped ship per parsec jumped.

And you are entirely correct to ask, it is not written anywhere in the books.

This was on reddit but it's the basic formula from CT.

"To calculate how much fuel you need for a jump, multiply 0.1 times the hull displacement (200 tons) times the jump distance (2) for a total of 40 tons of fuel."
