I can't remember where I got this (probably an obscure JTAS article) but IMTU, there is a 1-ton device called a Jump Governor that allowed Book 2 designed ships to jump at the rate of fuel per the jump number (i.e. a Jump three ship jumping 1 parsec and using 1/3 the fuel, etc). Otherwise, a ship not so equipped uses all it's fuel in a jump, due to inefficiency.

For what it's worth,
