    Rob,

    I noticed on page 109 of the new manual the statement...

    WARNING!! The following are based on the current fuel flow and the GPS ground speed. If power setting is
    changed or the winds change, the fuel computer will not be correct!

    Am I mis-ready this? Won't the fuel remaining increase or decrease with the change in power (fuel flow) or the GREQ with a change in ground speed (winds)?

    It's just a simple disclaimer like the "miles until empty" on your car. We want to state the the number displayed as GREQ to can not be taken as a factual at one given point along the route. It is subject to change with fuel flow and ground speed changes.
