I had a 141 audit last week. My reserves are well above the "new" rules and flow rates are based on years of accumulated data plus a 10% fudge factor. But I still have to change the ops manual to include policy and procedures for "what if" situations eg what if the fuel gauges don't match the fuel log. Sigh. I was told that the "mayday fuel" call is the only way a pilot can get priority from ATC....
