Default Ace 60 fuel consumption

Anyone here have any real world fuel consumption stats I can compare with? I know on GJC's website it specifies fuel consumption for the ACE 60 at 6.12 oz/minute at 83% power. I have 5 flights on mine and feel I'm burning on average closer to 10 oz/min at a similar (or lower) power setting. The setup is in a BVM 63" F-86 with two tanks of 1.75L and 11oz, totaling about 70 oz of available fuel before getting into the UAT, and I've had 7.5 minute flights where we did tap into the UAT itself. With the published consumption rate of 6.12 oz/min we should easily be able to get a 9-10 minute flight on this thing.

Trying to determine if there is some adjusting that could be done via the terminal or other items to check for. Thanks.

I wonder if there also may be a page in the the terminal to track consumption or average power % or similar to check as well.
