Hey guys I really need some help. I have gone through the CURA software and set the speed, temps, Flowrate, thickness, ect....... And when I load the Gcode into the printer it is not showing the values I put in the settings boxes in CURA. The Gcode is bare I think......For example does anyone see the Flowrate on there???? I set it to 104 but the printer shows 100 when i load the gcode......Any explainations would be greatly appreciated!!!
HERE IS THE BEGINNING OF THE GCODE::::::::::::::::

;Basic settings: Layer height: 0.2 Walls: 0.4 Fill: 10
;Print time: 1 hour 18 minutes
;Filament used: 4.802m 14.0g
;Filament cost: None
;M190 S60 ;Uncomment to add your own bed temperature line
;M109 S190 ;Uncomment to add your own temperature line
G21 ;metric values
G90 ;absolute positioning
M82 ;set extruder to absolute mode
M107 ;start with the fan off
G28 X0 Y0 ;move X/Y to min endstops
G28 Z0 ;move Z to min endstops
G1 Z15.0 F6000 ;move the platform down 15mm
G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length
G1 F200 E3 ;extrude 3mm of feed stock
G92 E0 ;zero the extruded length again
;Put printing message on LCD screen
When you set the flow 10 104% in cura, it will tell the extruder to move farther the calculated amount. For example, it set at 100%, the extruder will move to 100mm at a certain point in the print. If set to 104%, the extruder will have extruded 104mm to the same point in the print.
If you are printing from SD, you can tune the machine as it is printing without changing the gcode. In this case, the gcode will command 100mm, but the steps er mm will change, to the machine will actuall extrude 104mm when it thinks 100.
One way to use this, is to change the percentage while it is printing and when you find a value that works best, you will then know the setting to use in cura.
