    Fly higher, you will burn less fuel. ;)

    Also, don't believe what the default flight planner says about fuel consumption. Add at least 30% more.

    Hope you feel better after that long useless rant.

    Now if you want to shoot at other planes, get a military flightsim and not FSX which focuses on... flying aircrafts.

    I think the help pop-ups will always give the correct information (since they are help tips that can be disabled), but the gauges themselves will be more realistic.

    Zippy has it right. You are probably using a non English version of Windows and/or FSX. So as soon as you create a flightplan, all the planes start to sink, drop, crash, etc. Some people say that...

    You can get the correct QNH via ATC or from the map. The standard is usually 29.92 above 18,000ft, but it needs to be adjusted to the correct barometric pressure at lower altitudes.

    You have to uninstall SP1 first. Acceleration includes both SPs so it needs to be installed on a clean basic FSX installation.

    Make sure you rename the actual fsx.cfg file and not the .txt file with the same name that gets created when an error occurs. This is a common mistake. Good luck!
