How do I declare low fuel?

I’m at 1,800kg fuel in an A320 and I can’t declare low fuel.

You’ve most likely been flying for too short of a time. There’s a limit to flight time to avoid it being abused.

Oh… I’ve been flying for 1hr 25min… Is that too short?

good to know! thanks

Perhaps.

There’s also the fact that 1.800kg isn’t that low. You still have a good 30-45mins left of engine power with that unless you go full throttle.

Yes, I believe that’s right. I’m pretty sure low fuel isn’t hit until under 30 minutes.
