find the maximum amount of on fuel on board **at take off* for the following cases
question 2 requires you to take into consideration the max amount of fuel that can be loaded onto the echo which is 180gal of fuel.
For this flight
MTOW 2799kg
ZFW - 2307kg
=492kg of potential fuel = 180.88gallons
.88gal too much
180 gal =489.6kg
what about taxi?
as per supplement
fuel burn for taxi 3 gal= 8.16kg
max FOB@TO = 489.6kg -8.16kg(TAXI) FOB@TO=481.44kg

Yes, I agree. The taxi fuel should be allowed for. I've changed the answer working to show that. Thanks for your feed-back.
