Pmdg 737 excessive fuel burn

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I am new to flight simulators.  I am using prepare 3d and with 15,000 lbs of fuel it goes to 5,000 lbs in 5 or 10 minutes.  My stepson says I should reinstall pmdg.  The boy has been helpful in assigning controls and buttons and axis etc, but I am struggling with getting everything setup and working.  Any suggestions on the disappearing fuel?

Welcome to the PMDG forums, please note their rules require our full names on all posts.

Don't reinstall stuff unless PMDG recommends it, and certainly not in this case.  Are you using the FMC FS Actions Fuel screen to load the fuel?  You cannot use the P3D Fuel and Payload screen for this as explained in the Introduction document.  This is a very complex simulation, you will get a lot more enjoyment out of it if you review the Introduction and fly both Tutorials as many times as it takes to become familiar with the aircraft.

Thank you for the information.  Apparently there was a problem with the saved scenario I was using.  When I started fresh with a new plane, rwy, panel, FMS set up, weather, etc. the fuel burn went back to normal.
