This is a very handy calculator. Thank you so much for taking the time to put this site together.

In the Heatup Only Mode for v7.3.0.0 the calculator claims I will use 10.75 blocks of coal coke to heat up a cold boiler, but in the fuel simulation mode it shows an entire stack of coal coke blocks only lasting about an hour in the heatup phase before it runs out of fuel. I am fairly certain one of the calculations is off, and I think it's the heatup mode.

This calculator will tell you how much fuel of a certain type is needed to heat up a cold boiler to it's maximum temperature (Heatup Only), or tell you how long it will run with the given fuel (Fuel Simulation) or finally tell you how much fuel is required to keep the boiler running a set time (Time Simulation).
A few noteworthy things:
This calculator was written by Forecaster for the Minecraft mod Railcraft by CovertJaguar, based on formulas provided by the author.
The formula for calculating fuel usage can be found on the Railcraft Wiki.
Times are directly converted from ticks, this unless your server/client always run at peak tickrate (unlikely) times will vary slightly.
Fules values are kept up to date with the latest public Railcraft release. (Fuels from other mods are kept up to date as best I can.)
If you have a question, an issue or a feature suggestion (such as a specific fuel) you can post a comment and I will reply!
