Hello, everyone! Can anybody help me with this question? Is there any malfunction from MEL (for instance on airbus a320) which can affect fuel consumption? It is required for my diploma paper. I need to compare routine flight and with MEL relative to fuel consumption
Thanks a lot!

Sure. Many MELs would affect fuel consumption, particularly any one that requires a lower cruise altitude. This would result in a higher fuel consumption. An example that comes to mind is a deferred Air Conditioning PACK.
