What about the other points raised?
Which ones?
My question about how precise the FTL drive is.

Read the thread. LOTS of points raised. 'What about?' and all that.

What about fuel?
Assuming a craft of Subaru size, one tonne of fuel will last around four days, FTL drives increase fuel expenditure by a facture of three to seven, depending on the size of the craft.
How much volume would one tonne of fuel take up ?

What kind of fuel are we talking about ?

I answered that one earlier in the thread, I used warping into a garage as the example.

Warp fuel is a liquid mixture made up of various synthesized liquid fuels with slightly more then three times the density of water.
