FSX Default B737-800 Consumes Too Much Fuel!

Post by David Vega » Sun Jul 06, 2014 6:56 pm

We have learned that the FSX default B737-800 consumes too much fuel. In order to fix this, a change in the Aircraft.cfg file is necessary.

Aircraft.cfg will be located in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes folder. If you have installed FSX elsewhere, just find the ..\SimObjects\Airplanes folder.

Using a text editor, such as Notepad, open the file look for the section titled [GeneralEngineData]. There change

fuel_flow_scalar = 1
to
fuel_flow_scalar = 0.7392197

Save the file and you're done.
