Part 4 of Appendix I of TO 1F-5E-1 is the “range” section and probably has the closest thing to what you are looking for. That is where the constant altitude cruise charts and nm per pound charts are found. Examples for the use of every chart in Apendix I are at the bringing of each respective part.

Part 10 provides an example mission and goes through the solution from taxi to landing. It would take an afternoon to go through the whole process however haha.

Have you thought about getting your own no wind numbers for quick and dirty calculations? Like loading up the editor with the aircraft stores you want and cruising constant airspeed/Mach at 5k, 10k,15k,FL200, etc, and writing down your TAS (F2 view) and fuel flow. Then cruise fuel would be an easy calculation for you.
