The first assumption that I have to make is that the 38 lb/hr measurement is telling me how much gasoline is being injected per hour.

On that basis, the first thing we can do is convert lbs to grams:

38 lbs/hr x 453.58 g/lb = 17,236 g/hr

We'll next convert grams per hour to grams per minute by dividing by 60 min / hour

17236 g/hr x 1 hr /60 min = 287.27

Finally we need to get you to cubic centimeters per minute. The specific gravity of gasoline varies, but the reference I found states it as 0.739 grams per cc.

287.27 g/min x 1cc / 0.739 g = 388.72 cc/min
