How do you calculate the right amount of fuel for your trips?

just wondering what websites you guys use to calculate fuel for your trip and how to be the most fuel efficient when flying because the higher you go the slower speed you must be. so that confuses me on if altitude affects how quickly you will arrive at your destination.

Simbrief does it quite well. Oh, and you should better use fpltoif.com/simbrief to have IF ready flightplan

I just go by the length of time the menu gives me and I add a couple extra hours worth just in case.
Simbrief.com, fpltoif.com, those sorts of sites are good if you can’t bother with that.

Typically you add at least 1-2 hours extra fuel on top of your approximate flight time. For long hauls where I’m not available I always add more just in case.
