Fuel emergency

Hi, I really wonder what is the difference between Minimum Fuel and Emergency Fuel when contacting ATC for a Fuel emergency


Emergency fuel is you have basically none left and have to land ASAP, minimum means you cannot make alternative and must land there basically I believe. Correct if wrong

Basically, you cannot tell the controller that you are in minimum fuel , but you can declare a fuel emergency after some hours flying (to prevent trolls), so when your HUD display minimum fuel, I would notify immediately ATC declaring an emergency, because as said above, minimum fuel needs to land immediately and for me it is the same as emergency fuel here on IF
