I don't use VATSIM but believe the program is the Fuel and Payload button located on the Startup/Free Flight screen and, during flight, you can get the current info thru the Menu/Aircraft Tab. Best regards,Jim

This might seem like a wildly adventurous suggestion, but have you tried looking at the fuel gauge? Al

Yeah, that's what I would have thought... Any hint as to what plane you're flying? As you might have already expected, it depends on the plane where the fuel gauge is situated.

In the OP's signature, he lists several payware aircraft. Does VATSIM really require this info? No wonder I don't use it (although I've heard it's a great experience). Best regards,Jim

Fuel on board refers to the time or endurance. So take gallons on board/fuel burn per hour and you have your fuel on board in hours and minutes.

Hi,Bad timing on my part (didn't check this thread for a week!) but I'll probably fly the 738/744/752 from the respective developers in my signature, but is there an equation, or is it just presented on a screen like almost everything other piece of information in a modern airliner?EDIT: just saw Toms post, and thats exactly what I needed, I take it you just figure out fuel burn per hour with an estimate? Thanks and sorry for the thread revival,
