Hey all,Doing a new plane, a jet this time. Ns cant number out what my fuel tanks need to be together all the web page on this airplane are in pounds. Ns did uncover a keep in mind that says the plane carried a complete of 847 gallons.I have actually two wing tanks, two tip tanks, and also two fuselage tanks. I know that the fuselage stop 1800 lbs. The wings are 1141 lbs. The tips are 368 "gallons"? (all I could find). And if I perform the math, the comes the end crazy. I look increase Jet-A fuel virtual at numerous websites, and it claims Jet-A weighs 6.79. That"s basically virtually 7 lbs, or 6.8. Most fuel is measured (I thought) in ~ 6.6. I now uncover out the Airliner pilots room trained to walk by 6 lbs every gallon. Once I calculate to the ideal of my abilities the tanks ~ above this bird, the comes the end to 6.4.I "thought" or figured the fuel in FS is at 6.6 lbs. Currently Im not certain if that is correct, gaining blurry here, and coudnt uncover fuel load in the FS2004 SDK in the aircraft Container doc. Surely its in there, however I am absent it, ns guess. (Just looked again and didn"t discover it).So, my question is, what is FS fuel weight, Jet-A, per gallon.I assumption: v I have the right to fudge this, yet I hate too. I have actually been looking for 2 days currently for gallons per tanks ~ above a Learjet 23 and have found NOTHING... Talk around ways to advice gray eyebrowing the the eyebrows, converting them right into shiny, silvery, aluminum prefer antennae...

I got it. Figuring it approximately 6 lbs every gallon, I readjusted the wing tanks to balance out the total.Fuselage....1800 lbs.....300 GalWings........1141 lbs....190 GalTips...........2142 lbs....357 GalTotal..........5083 lbs....847 Galwhew...

Hey Bill here is a little bit of reference product for the Lear. This is the setups for the Lear 25D fuel cfg in mine fs9 setup and also it is pretty much spot on.External1 = 0.000, 0.000, 0.000, 195.000, 2.000LeftMain = 0.000, -8.000, -0.300, 173.000, 3.000LeftTip = 0.000, -19.950, -0.200, 184.000, 2.000RightMain = 0.000, 8.000, -0.300, 173.000, 3.000RightTip= 0.000, 19.950, -0.200, 178.000, 2.000//////////////////////////Total fuel 6055lbs--903galls--//////////////////////////Like ns said, the over is because that a 25D and also the 24"s and 23"s had actually less fuel. Ns attached two images for you. One is the fuel dashboard from the Lear 24 and will give you the numbers the you most most likely need come use. The other is from a 25B and holds a bit much more in the fuse tank.6.7 is the nominal value for JetA (trust me, i pumped it because that 13 years). It deserve to vary in density from 6.6-6.8 therefore 6.7 is ususlly the "normal".If you use 139 gallons for the External1 tank because that the Learjet23 it will yield 847 gallons total.The External1 cheat works great too as it burns the end of the fuselage tank first as it does in actual life.Hope this help
