How do you do fuel checks?

How do you do fuel checks? I always wanted to know I always calculate how much fuel I will have leftover after the flight, but is there anything else to it? How often am I supposed to fuel checks at cruise?

At the bottom tool bar there is a “fuel remaining” tab which will show you the amount of fuel remaining and how much longer that fuel will take you. Keep in mind that that time is at the current cruise, ascent, or descent so it may differ than what ends up happening a little. You don’t really need to check fuel that often if you use the proper amount. The only time I make sure to check it at a set time is if I’m flying to somewhere in the middle of the ocean, where I need to make sure I will have enough before I reach a point of no return.
