Hello Martin.I am not sure about the fuel quantities, but keep in mind 6,800 nm is the MAX range for a BBJ. It really depends on the options (that range is only achievable with several auxiliary fuel tanks installed in the cargo hold). Most models sold fall way short of that target, due to consumer options, such as more lavish interiors, which due to max takeoff weight are a tradeoff for fuel.What BBJ are you flying? Ariane's? Do you know which version they modelled?

The fuel_flow_scalar is used to regulate fuel consumption.The easy way to adjust this is to download AFSD and run it while running the sim to test your air file.This program is excellent for engine, aerodynamics, weight, and other data.This program will give you real time fuel consumption and estimated range.You can get it here at AVSIM or at this link:http://perso.wanadoo.fr/hsors/FS_Soft/afsd.htmlMilton
