Fuel Comparison

I am trying to decide which type of aircraft to use for my waves, but I’m not understanding the Fuel column in the Aircraft Type Evaluation.

For example, if I look at ORD to JFK the aircraft type evaluation says that fuel for the Tupolev TU-204-100 is $2,638. If I run the same route in the performance information tool, it shows that the ORD to JFK route will burn 11,619 liters of fuel. It looks like the fuel cost is around $30/l, so I’m not sure why aircraft type evaluation says fuel would be only $2,638 per flight.

Could someone explain this to me?



If you look carefully at the graph it says Fuel Prices (ASc$/l), meaning the values are in cents, not $. So it’s around 0.30 AS$/l.
