Exclamation UDF carbon conversion

Hi, I wrote a UDF to calculate more accurately the carbon conversion. When I apply the UDF for each reaction separately it works perfect, but when I enable all the 4 simultaneously then it works wrong. Can someone explain me why this happen?
Thank you very much in advance for your help

and then using the define_pr_rate 4 times for the 4 reactions
