Fuel used are not processed correctly

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey,

I am not sure if this a smartCARS2 issue or a phpvms 5.5 one. But I need a point where I can start to find a solution ;) I have set up everything to "feet", "nm" and "kilogramms".

If a pilot sent a pirep via smartCARS2, the fuel used are totally incorrect. Here some facts:

local.config.php of phpvms 5.5: As you can see below, we've all set to "kg".

Config::Set('MONEY_UNIT', '€');
Config::Set('WeightUnit', '0');   # 0=Kg 1=lbs
Config::Set('DistanceUnit', '2');   # 0=KM 1= Miles 2=NMiles
Config::Set('SpeedUnit', '1');   # 0=Km/H 1=Kts
Config::Set('AltUnit', '1');   # 0=Meter 1=Feet 
Config::Set('LiquidUnit', '2');   # 0=liter 1=gal 2=kg 3=lbs
Config::Set('WelcomeMessage', 'Virtual Cargo International - ACARS'); # Welcome Message
Config::Set('FUEL_DEFAULT_PRICE', 0.63);

Our smartCARS2 is also set to "kg":

Here an actually flight(PIREP) that was sent by one of our pilots:

[13:23:53] The flight may now be ended
[13:23:53] Taxi time was less than 15 seconds
[13:23:53] Arrived, flight duration: 04:07

And now how the PIREP come into our system:

As you can notice, from pushback to the landing phase he burned 48581kg of fuel.

At the admin center fuel used shows us 107122kg.

And with a little bit of math, the 107122 are lbs not kg. (107122 * 0,453592 = 48589)

Why the fuel used comes still in lbs, although anything is setup to kg? Thank you in advance :)
