Your fuel flows are too high (The cruise is to be at 65% MCP with a TAS of 185 kt) ie: 14 gph
(Note that the fixed reserve for a charter ﬂight is based on 45 min at 20 gph, i.e. 15 gal. It is
normal in large aircraft to carry the 45 min fxed reserve at a "holding rate". After all, it is intended for use if the aircraft arrives and for some reason cannot land immediately)
and you have to calculate your variable reserve at 10 % (Since Nov 8th)
