I have recently started flying the local club's Pipistrel Velis Electro. I would like to add it to the Skydemon app for assistance in planning point-to-point flights. I have currently added it with a fuel type of "avgas" with the tank capacity corresponding to the battery size in kWh and fuel consumption in kW. I consider this a bit of an ugly hack though since it also interferes with the weight and balance calculations. Could I request an option to add a fuel type with 0 weight for this case. I'm sure in a few years there will be more and more models appearing with capacities measured in kWh rather than liters Smile.

This is kind of on our radar, but low priority at the moment due to the limited number of these aircraft operating.
