Insufficient Fuel FMC message

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello, I am running the latest version of the 717 and for as long as I can remember (despite updates), I haven't been able to use it because whenever I try setting up the FMC, I get an 
"insufficient fuel" message in the scratchpad of the FMC as soon as I enter GW or ZFW.  This occurs no matter how much fuel I have (even if I do a full load of fuel for a 30 minute flight, just to make sure), and means I am never able to generate a vertical profile for the flight.  If I try taking off with TOGA, as soon as I am in the air and PROF becomes active, the auto flight system actually reduces my thrust to idle until I stall.  Any ideas?  This occurs regardless of my P3D version.  I also get random crashes when setting up on the ground and I also want to point out that the insufficient fuel message does not pop up if the cockpit state is loaded from the "ready to start" option.

I get the same message (and I use the "Ready to Fly" option), but I have not yet conducted a test flight. I guess this means that I may encounter problems? The fuel load is 8.5 tons for a quick circuit, so there defintely IS enough fuel for the trip!!

EDIT: This is with the latest version of the 717 in P3D v4.5HF2
