Block Fuel - help wanted

Good morning all,
This thread was in tech log and it was suggested I may have some luck down under, as there are B717 operating as well as a few other types I have not been able to find!
Was wondering if turbo prop/jet pilots could help with their block fuel?
As part of a university project I am undertaking research into how the pilots make sure a company offered fuel load is acceptable: What gross error checks are used?
  • Fokker F27
  • DHC8 (all types)
  • ATR 42 and 72
  • CRJ200
  • B717
  • DC9 ( all types)
  • A320- A321
  • A330 200 and 300
  • A330 NEO (800-900)
  • A340 300 and 600
  • A350
  • B757 200 and 300
  • B767 200ER and 300 ER
  • B777 all series
  • B787 900
All replies and all turbo prop and jet aircraft types, not just those listed are appreciated!
Thanks in advance

On the A330-200 we can press the fuel planning key to see what the aircraft thinks is required after we have put in the flight plan data and weights.

I use it as a gross error check before I put in the actual block fuel we have.

B717 2200kg/h as above, or
2000kg for the first 20 minutes, then 2000kg/h thereafter, or
3000kg for the first hour, then 2000kg/h.
Based on MTOW departure.
May be significantly less at lower weights.

Doh! Duly corrected, I had 1100/hr in my old book, but it was a gross error figure.
