Newbie GM here, but 40s years playing.

I need to clarify a technical question about Fuel Skimming?

High Guard p37 states 1T of Fuel Processor will turn unrefined fuel (brought or skimmed) into 20T of refined fuel in a 24 hour period.

Mathematics: A ship can do approximately 250 (7 minutes) passes in a 24 hour period. This means 1 pass give approximately 0.08T of fuel per 1T of Fuel processor.

Traveller Companion Pg 156 talk about 1% of the ship

**hull tonnage**per 2D (Average 7) minute pass through a gas giant (depending on layer).

Mathematics: In a 24 hour period, a ship can do 250 passes, as above. This mean any and all ships will produce 250% of the

**with one 1T of Fuel processor in one day.**

__hull tonnage__So a 200T Far traders with one 1T of Fuel processor would fill it's 41 ton bank in an average of 140 minutes.

While a 2000 T ship with one 1T of Fuel processor would fill it's 41 ton fuel bank in an average of 14.35 minutes.

Have I stuff up my mathematics or is it a typo?

I have assume Traveller Companion Pg 156 is a typo. It should read:

**A ship can skim fuel equal to 1% of its**~~hull~~ The would change the mathematics back to; One pass of a ship with a 1T of Fuel processor would refined 0.01T of fuel. So over 250 passes, it would process 25 Tons of fuel. You would more fuel faster, buy 2T of Fuel Processor.

*tonnage per pass, with a pass typically requiring 2D minutes.*__Fuel Processor__Technically, the percentage should be 0.08%, by why turn the game into an ACCOUNTING class.

Why have I ask this question, I am running the Island in the Reft adventure as my 2nd game, and there is a mined Gas Giant. I just want to make sure I have the concept right.

Does anyone have experience with this adventure, and have any idea?

Thanks you
