FAA Knowledge Test

Question:
(Refer to Figure 36 on pg. 163.) What is the expected fuel consumption for a 1,000-nautical mile flight under the following conditions?
Pressure Altitude: 8,000 ft
Temperature: 22 degrees C
Manifold Pressure: 20.8" Hg
Wind: Calm
Answer:
70.1 gallons (Use the chart and find the Pressure alt and then go to the right to find the KTS and Fuel flow (1000 NM / 164 knots = 6.09 hr > multiply 6.09 by 11.5 (which is the GPH of fuel flow) and you get 70.1 gallons.)
