FS quotes fuel in US gallons - forget Imperial gallons.
Your FS fuel burn will be calculated in US gallons or pounds if you want
to use that option.

..and finally...

1 US gallon weighs 5.76 pounds

This is the conversion factor you should use in PIREPS.

If you look at your completed PIREPS, the fuel is reported in lbs, so
that is probably the best unit to use when filing, to avoid confusion.
