Active Flight Plan Page Shows Negative Fuel Remaining at Destination (v1.1.11)

Recommended Posts

Greetings Goran,

I landed with approximately 119 gallons remaining. Suffice it to say I had more than enough fuel to complete the flight.

No, that is a bug 100%. I am getting it every single flight. The G1000 is showing correct amount of fuel in the SYSTEM-FUEL page, but the FPL calculations are not using that figure.

Is it possible for the devs to confirm the issue? I am trying to find what I am doing wrong without success...

And just to say. Aside from that, I love the bird. Been flying it a lot and reading the manuals. Just having trouble with this one...

I am seeing the same issue here. I think the solution might be to load the fuel in a cold & dark cockpit and only then power on the systems. Now I've only tested this once and it worked, so it might have been a coincidence. I haven't had the time to do further testing.

I have done that. Tried now again and still no luck. Also tried loading aircraft "normally" and not using the resume last flight function: no luck.

Better fuel planning needed?

Is this going to be the only official response what we get in regards of this matter. I do like the product but "kinda" sucks to pay 70€ on a product and completely get ignored by the company with an issue regarding that product.

The official line is:
The foundation of the G1000 has all of Laminars underlying code in it.  All the radios, airways, map drawing, etc... is stock G1000.  Saso, the person who coded all the systems, simply added more features to it and customized it to reflect, on the surface, a TBM900 G1000.  So, if there is a problem with the fuel estimates, due to the fact we are using Laminars fuel code, you will need to file a report with them so they can address it.  

For the record, this has been addressed already in several other forum posts.  So we haven't ignored this topic.

Thank you for the reply. I will send them report and see what they say. 

For the record: this does not indicate that there is an issue that has been acknowledged and adressed/pointed to, but rather pushes the fault to the customer.

I think you mean to Laminar, which is valid.

Thanks for helping out!
