Trip Fuel Consumption Calculation

This calculator is used to calculate the post trip fuel remaining for AvGas and Jet A. Avgas (100-130 or 100-130LL) weight is calculated at 6 pounds per gallon; Jet A (jet fuel) at 6.84 pounds per gallon. The weights are accepted averages based on specific gravity and other variables, such as temperature and additives due to climate.

  • Enter Gallons Per Hour (GPH) Consumption Rating

  • Enter Trip Time Elapsed In Hours

  • Enter Starting Fuel In Gallons In All Tanks

  • Your Calculated Fuel Ramaining (Hours)

  • Beginning Fuel Load (Gallons)

  • Current Fuel Load (Gallons)

  • Topping Tanks (AvGas) Would Increase Current Weight (Pounds)

  • Topping Tanks (Jet A) Would Increase Current Weight (Pounds)


Aviation Gasoline weight per gallon(gw)=6.00
Jet A weight per gallon(dw)=6.84
Total Capacity (AvGas) Fuel Load Weight=(Fuel weight)* (gw)
Calculated Fuel Ramaining=(st)-((tt)*(gph))
Beginning Fuel Load=Fuel weight*Tank
Current fuel load=Fuel weight-calculated fuel;
