# How can I verify if the quantity of fuel being used is correct? [closed]

Is there a formula to determine if the quantity of aviation fuel that is posted as being used is correct? If I have the number of gallons, the pounds and hours flown?

• Welcome to aviation.SE! I don't completely understand your question. What is the "posted" value that you're talking about? Exactly what two things are you trying to compare? – Pondlife Apr 17 '18 at 21:15

Gallons * 6.01 is the weight. For example, if you're filling up a Cessna 172SP that holds 56 gallons, it should take 336.5 lbs. of fuel.
