Fuel Calculations

Recommended Posts

Everything on the MFD regarding fuel is correct with the exception of the flightplan page.  It calculates the fuel use correctly, just not the actual fuel quantity.  It always seems to show, at the start, only the fuel on board when the aircraft was loaded in.  Not reflecting any fuel added after the aircraft loads into the sim.

Is there some page I am missing on the MFD to adjust the fuel so that it matches what the rest of the readouts show?  Fuel gauges, fuel page, both correct.

You need to adjust the fuel amount within the G1000, after you refuel or load the aircraft. There is a distinct fuel gauge, but as for flight planning, you need to adjust it manual to reflect the current fuel state. As remember it should be at the system page of the MFD. The most left lower softkey and than there should be some softkey for fuel increase and decrease.

I've been to that page, but it shows the correct amount of fuel.  I also can't find any way to change the amount.

Sorry I was mistaken. My above hint does not work with the TBM. It works on other G1000 aircraft 

So the fuel state in the flight planning page might be a bug with laminar.

This is actually still an issue.  The in flight calculations are based off of the amount of fuel the aircraft has when it loads into the sim.  Not the amount that you fill from the payload screen.

Hi,

the same here - wrong calculation:

I have 1hr flight to go , 200 USG FOB, 58 USG FF and at destination I can expect -7 USG :(

Devs please take a look into this bug.

Thank you

Hmmm, I looked at all my G1000 docs (X-plane, Gamin, and Socata !), but in the sim I can't get the calculation to display.

How do you see it ?

(Note, I was on the ground, engine off, that may be wrong)

Thanks for any hints... !

I have this issue as well. I thought it was something I was doing since I am still learning the plan and the G1000. Is this a Laminar issue or something in the TBM?

Fixed and should be in the next update

The last build 1.1.8 shows the same issue about the fuel remaining..

thankfully we do calculations of fuel, but thats a nice thing to have....

I like to adventure in the deep and far NAT on a single engine turboprop and it a nice to have when you have 50Kts headwind and you need to confirm if could reach your destination.

Cheers!!!

Wouldn't it be a "workaround" to put the Fuel into a config file, before i start the sim?

Maybe the Fuel state is given in the TBM900.acf. At least there is a section

PROPERTIES_BEGIN
P _cgpt/0/_name empty craft
P _cgpt/0/_w_max 4581.200195312
P _cgpt/0/_w_now 4581.200195312
P _cgpt/0/_w_test 4581.204589844
P _cgpt/0/_z_ref 14.300000191
P _cgpt/1/_name fuel tank #1
P _cgpt/1/_w_max 1005.299987793
P _cgpt/1/_w_now 1005.300048828
P _cgpt/1/_w_test 0.0
P _cgpt/1/_z_ref 14.300000191
P _cgpt/10/_w_max 0.0

So it would be possible to make the Flight Planing after that insert the right amount of Fuel into the acf, and than the Fuel calculation should be correct. Or am I missing something?
