## What is Aviation Fuel Weight Calculator?

An Aviation Fuel Weight Calculator is a tool that calculates the weight of aviation fuel based on its volume in gallons. This calculator is useful for pilots and aviation professionals who need to know the weight of fuel to ensure safe and efficient aircraft operation.

### Formula

The formula used in the Aviation Fuel Weight Calculator is:

`AFW = VF * 6.7`

**Where:**

- AFW is the Aviation Fuel Weight in pounds
- VF is the Total Volume of Fuel in gallons
- 6.7 is the weight of one gallon of aviation fuel in pounds

### Example

Suppose we want to calculate the Aviation Fuel Weight for a total volume of fuel of 100 gallons. Using the formula, we can calculate the weight as:

`AFW = 100 * 6.7 = 670 pounds`

Therefore, the Aviation Fuel Weight for a total volume of 100 gallons is 670 pounds.

### How to Calculate

To use the Aviation Fuel Weight Calculator, follow these steps:

- Enter the total volume of fuel in gallons in the input field provided.
- Click the “Calculate” button to calculate the Aviation Fuel Weight in pounds.
- The result will be displayed on the page.
