So I've seen these engines that say they are efficient at low power levels.. and I'm wondering what does that mean exactly.

Does it mean I can use a lower 'engine' power setting without losing any speed? If so, how low can I set it without messing something up?

I assume it doesnt effect turn rate since that is Aux Power not Engine Power (or so Ive read).

I would assume it mean any setting except full impulse.

It means that it's faster than a regular impulse engine at low power (25-50%) and slower at high (50-100%), while a Hyper-impulse engine would be the reverse (faster at 75-100%).

I see. I guess I'll have to mess with settings a bit when I get a chance to get in game again. I'd like to not loose speed but would be nice if I could reduce power more so I can use it elsewhere.

Is that engine power setting or throttle level?

I assume it means power setting, and since it is listed under the main 'speed' listing and not the turn rate or full impulse speed it only refers to standard speed.
