At 18,000rpm before the limiter kicks in the fuel injector is fired once every 6.6ms for a duration of 2.7ms at full throttle. The fuel delivered by each injection event is 0.049cc, approximately the same volume of venom in a snakebite. However the fuel used by the engine at full throttle in the same conditions is between 3.5L/min and 4L/min depending on ambient conditions, about half as much as a normal power shower dispenses during your daily shower!
