W&B - what does AVGAS weigh?

By LukasK - 8/9/2017 9:33:26 AM


I‌'m getting minor deviation from my W&B side calculation compared to SD. I think this is driven by different assumptions on how much a liter AVGAS 100 weigh. Does anyone know what the exact number in SD is? I usually take 0.721kg/l which is a bit too high I believe. 

I‌ know 0.3kg or so are not ‌changing a thing but I like to understand where numbers come from Wink

M‌any thanks

We use approximately 0.7185kg for a litre of Avgas in our calculations.
