Berlin-Tegel is the home airport of Air Berlin, but it is by no means the only starting point in Germany

I'll find out flight details for you now 😉

No problem 😉

In the left and right tank, you'll need 64% and in the middle tank you'll need 45% 😉

57.6% of the total fuel capacity is needed 😉

Isn't EDDN the home airport and the main base of AB? Lived in Berlin near EDDG for several years and haven't seen any AB B737 staying for night, repairing or what so ever?

Wow, that's impressive. Would you mind telling me how you work out how much fuel is needed (with the correct ammount of reserves) for each aircraft? Also, why do you put less fuel in the middle tank?

Thanks in advance!

😂 Sounds clever but it really isn't. Basically, I made a flightplan from the airport requested to the other airport, and looked at the fuel required. I multiplied this by 4, (a rough measure of taxiing fuel, extra fuel for alternate airports, plus emergency fuel, plus a little bit more because FS flightplan underestimates fuel) to get the fuel needed. Then you divide this number by the number of fuel tanks and enter it into the fuel planner in pounds. This will then show up a percentage. The reason the middle tank is carrying less fuel, is because it has a higher capacity, so when you put the same amount of fuel in pounds in each tank, the percentage differs slightly. Its pretty unorthodox, but seems to work fairly accurately for me 😉

Hope that helps 😀

So you bring four times the required fuel! Wow, I never guessed you would bring that much. If FS Navigator hadn't underestimated fuel how much would you bring? 3 times as much?

Thanks for the help by the way...

Well four times the fuel suggested is a fair bit more than needed, but depends on how people fly. A lot of people don't fly in FS9 using the fuel economically so a lot more fuel may be used. Over longer distances where the fuel is going to be higher, you don't need to multiply it by 4, maybe 2 or just add a bit more because the cruise at high altitude will be longer, using less fuel. Seems a bit strange but had always worked for me 😉

I basically add how ever much fuel I need on the distance of the whole flight, so if its shorter, I'd add say 3-4 times the fuel. The other night I was flying online with 4 times the fuel, and I got down to 19% fuel left because I had to circle the runway and I didn't fly economically. Hope it makes some sense 🙂
