Anyone who currently operates or has operated the Cit Excel, what are you min fuel requirement for Day VFR and IFR with 100 n.m. alternate in LBS. Been using 2000 lbs and just curious what others have been planning. I know there are alot of other variables, lets just say landing in the Midwest with no real delays.

Cessna says minimum of 1200 lbs for landing.....

1500 was OK for severe clear, 2000 in the bank made me feel much better when I flew it.
