I fly the 747-400F with GE engines.  Fuel burn varies considerably
with gross weight, but following figures are close for a long range,
heavyweight flight:

Initial burn is 3.2 Tonnes/hour/engine (13 Tonnes/hour)

Final burn is 2.5 Tonnes/hour/engine (10 Tonnes/hour)

Add about 10 Tonnes for takeoff and climb.
