P3Dv5.1 HF1 Payload and Fuel - OK My ERROR!

Recommended Posts

This seems very strange. I am using the Carenado Saab 340 and the Fuel capacity in the aircraft.cfg file reads 850 gallons, the actual RW capacity is 5,690 lbs. The P3D "Fuel and Payload" screen shows 850 gallons, the same as the aircraft.cfg file. That's fine, it's reading it properly. Has P3D always shown gallons of fuel, I thought we could change that in preferences? All other items are shown as lbs.  I didn't notice this in other versions of P3D. Even so, if I convert the 850 gallons to lbs (850 x2.2) it comes to approx. 1,870 lbs.Capacity. way off the RW capacity of 5,690 lbs. I just reinstalled the Saab and didn't notice this with my previous installation. I have no idea. I could manually adjust the aircraft.cfg file, but I should not have to. Anyone else see this?

Regards

Sorry, false alarm my calculation was wrong, I was thinking the wrong unit measure it's approx 8.3 lbs per gallon, I was using kgs to lbs (2.2). I forgot to check the box in the Payload Fuel screen to choose lbs or gallons for fuel.

Regards
