Very important page. I read an article in Approach a long time ago about a Hornet guy who was on a long cross country from Cherry Point to WTI in Yuma and nearly ran out of gas because the FPAS wasn't configured correctly. Maintainers didn't program it for the pylons being installed, so the aircraft did not compensate for the drag in the running calculation, so he thought he was above ladder all the way up until the master caution light came on.

If memory serves correctly he made it into DFW on fumes.

Oh yeah also thunderstorm.

Yep, that looks like quite a useful page especially for longer flights and the relatively low range high fuel burn rate etc. Interesting too.
