Manually Fuel settings


Recommended Posts

Hi there

how can I set the amount of fuel as I want? At the moment I do my routing e.g EDDF to EDDL and when it comes to the FMC Fuel input i write the word "FUEL" in the scratchpad and confirm it with LSK4 on the write site. The FMC then automatically calculates the amount of Fuel needed for the Dep/Arr distance. 

So far so good, but this calculations are always very spare, with no much fuel for holdings or long taxi patterns,.... When I try to set an amount of fuel manually e.g 6000kg instead of 4000 as calculated, the FMC always says "Compare Fuel Quantity" and the number of Gauge amount of fuel and the Fuel amount of fuel is different (the gauge doesnt copy the manual input, it seems)

FInd pictures below


Any ideas?
