DISCLAIMER: PLEASE READ FULL POST FOR ACCURATE EXPERIENCE
Because on a previous post people were wondering how to calculate fuel needed for when global comes out I’ve found some specifications and created a formula to calculate how many US GALLONS are needed for these aircraft below (Direct with no additional fuel for diverting or holding). For an aircraft multiply how many nautical miles you are travelling by the number listed next to the aircraft model. That should give you how much fuel to carry on your flight. I based this off the aircraft’s specifications of max fuel capacity and max range. Use this thread to post other fuel consumption formulas for other aircraft. All fuel consumption is off of maximum range at maximum weight. (I will update these if I can get my hands on fuel burn per mile for any of these aircraft).

Note 1: For the CRJ a fuel capacity is not listed.
Note 2: For the Super Decathlon range is not listed.
Note 3: Hard to calculate as most do not have autopilots and some have external fuel pods attached. Calculated without fuel pods and on ferrying range not combat range.
Note 4: IF Limits caps fuel capacity at 85,400 kg when total fuel capacity is actually 109,185 kg. In addition, MTOW is incorrect on IF.
Note 5: Incorrect MTOW on IF. Fuel Capacity works but MTOW is 30,000 kg less in IF.
Note 6: IF version is limited in fuel capacity. Fuel capacity is 56,000 kg short
Note 7: IF seems to have combined the -300 with the 300ER as the fuel capacity and MTOW fall under the 767-300ER specifications. Range may exceed what is possible in 767-300 specifications.
Special Note: (Confirmed MTOW) means that the calculation agrees with data put into IF models.
