Formulas Used:

Aviation Gasoline weight per gallon(gw)=6.00Jet A weight per gallon(dw)=6.84Total Capacity (AvGas) Fuel Load Weight=(Fuel weight)* (gw)GPH=start fuel-end fuel

NOTE:Be sure to take into consideration winds aloft, restricted zones, climb time and fuel for a margin of safety when calculating requirements. Be sure to check the current NOAA aviation weather for departure, along the flight plan and at the destination airport before departure.
