Fuel for NGX

Post by adsuk » Tue May 01, 2012 6:12 pm

Hi All.

Firstly i want to say how fantastic Vroute Premium is , Thank you!

OK, I have 2 questions regarding calculating the fuel on vroute.

In the fuel section, once i have chosen a route, It says on the left ''Payload, Maximum ...... '', The question I'm asking is, Looking at this weight sheet,

Now, I presume it would be the TTL (Total Traffic Load) of 15013kg. ???

If this correct, The total when calculated is 20020kg, So i would just enter this into the total fuel on the FMC? (NGX), And anyone know how to change the units to Kg in NGX FMC ?

Would it be this

I hope these questions don't sound silly, Thanks in advance, Adam.

It seems like NGX is doing some work for you by splitting the amount of fuel into tanks according to some recommended sequence of filling.

Normally (for non-NGX planes) you would go to Aircraft|Fuel in FSX and fill your tanks there. The FMC should reflect values entered in FSX. Can you try this option?
