Beetle diagram questions including taxi fuel?

Gday,

Im going through the review question set one, and have found some issues.

In the answers for question 14, min fuel at t/o is calculated as 208kg ((55.9gal x 1.1)+15gal) x 2.72)) =208kg, however in the diagram fuel at start is 216kg which included fuel burnt during start & taxi ((208kg + 3gal x 2.72 =216kg) . My understanding is that taxi fuel is not included in the beetle diagram, as it is only concerned with fuel at t/o?


This seems to be repeated in further questions in the review sets like question 7 in the final cpl test.

Would appreciate some feedback, is there something I'm missing?

Thanks in advance

Thanks for that. The working is correct but the diagram does show fuel at start-up. I have changed the diagram to read 208kg instead of 216kg. Likewise Final Test Question 7. Thanks for the feedback.
