I'm having a brain storm, If I have an 8 cylinder 4 stroke engine running at 4000 rpm over a 10 minute test and it consumes 4.4 Kg of fuel, then is the fuel mass flow rate as simple as the 4.4 Kg divided by the time to give me an answer on Kg/sec ? Thanks,

Not sure of the whole question, but in the test above, if there were 4.4 kg of fuel used in a 10 minute test, that would be 0.44 kg/min, 0.007 kg/sec, or 26.4 kg/hr.

Is there more to the question?
