Often, pilots will make an educated guess as to whether or not they should tanker fuel.
Sometimes it is easy. For example, let's say a pilot is flying from A to B and the fuel price at A is $5.00 and at B it is $7.50. The mental math is easy and it is clear the pilot should tanker fuel if landing weights permit it.
However, sometimes these "guesses" aren't so easy. For instance, what if the fuel prices in the example above were $5.00 and $5.50 respectively and there is a ramp fee of $500 at point B, unless you purchase 200 gallons of fuel? Furthermore, what if you don't really need fuel because you can fly to your next destination without it? What should you do?
This is where many pilots will try to make an educated guess without really putting their pen to paper. iFUEL makes fuel tankering decisions easy, helping your flight department potentially save thousands of dollars depending on your operation. The app works for any type of aircraft, from a Citation, to a Hawker, to a Gulfstream, to a BBJ. So if you buy fuel and want to save your operation money - make iFUEL a must-have app on your Apple device.
