 +===== Fuel ===== 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​fuel-load/​fuel.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +In first section you can see and adjust the current fuel amount of the aircraft. 
 + 
 +On top of the list you can see ''​All Tanks''​ which shows the total fuel amount. Below that all individual tanks are listed. 
 + 
 +You can change the current fuel amount either for all tanks - which leads to your change being equally spread around all tanks - or for one tank individually. 
 + 
 +Either click on one of the five percent buttons to quickly set a common fuel amount or enter a specific value into the input field. 
 + 
 +===== Payload ===== 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​fuel-load/​payload.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +This payload section is designed similar to the fuel section: All payload stations are listed and the load of each payload station can be adjusted by clicking on the appropriate button or entering a specific value manually. 
 + 
 +===== Weight Calculation ===== 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​fuel-load/​weight.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +In the weight calculation section the current aircraft weight is calculated in real-time considering the aircraft empty weight, the current payload as well as the remaining fuel in all tanks. 
 + 
 +Additionally the longitudinal and lateral center of gravity (CG) is displayed here. 
 + 
 +:i: Note: The lateral center of gravity is not available for X-Plane. 
 +===== Freeze Fuel ===== 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​fuel-load/​fuel-freeze.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +Additionally there is an option to freeze the current fuel amount of the aircraft. Then it will not consume fuel anymore as long as this option is set. 
 + 
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​fuel-load/​fuel-unfreeze.png?​nolink|}} 
 + 
 +To unfreeze the fuel again, just click a second time on the button.
