Default P-Plant Fuel and Drive Stages

Apologies if this has been addressed already, but I didn't see anything in the errata and was unable to search-fu an answer.

First, for clarification, is the tonnage for operational fuel per year, or per month? The PDF I have, on page 382 under How Fuel Works, states that a P-Plant requires tons equal to the hull tonnage times the P-Plant Potential, divided by 100, for 12 months of operation. So, H/100 * P (easier to read as hulls come in 100 ton multiples) for one year.

However, on page 383, in the sidebar giving three power plant examples, the P-Plant example indicates that the plant requires that tonnage per month.

I'm assuming the example is correct in this case - otherwise fuel other than for jumps is trivial.

Second question regards tech level stages with a P-Plant: does the fuel modifier apply to the operational fuel usage? Would an improved P-Plant, for example, require 90% of the above fuel per operating period?

Thanks in advance!
