What about fuel and oil consumption rates of the F130 as compared to the TF-33?

I'll suggest that the new version be called the B-52RR. I know where the door is.

The USAF's requirements were fairly stringent and their target was a 30% reduction in
fuel consumption, it would interesting to see how close R-R got with the F130 proposal.
