My airline operates the Boeing B747-100 and the B747-200. Our
B747-100's have a maximum fuel capacity of 318,000 pounds, while our
B747-200's hold about 344,000 pounds of fuel. Most airlines use fuel
capacity measurements in weight rather than a normal fluid capacity
measurement. Therefore, while you may expect an answer in gallons or
litres, the airline way is either pounds or kilos. If you want to
convert to gallons, divide by 6.7. I'm not sure for litres. I hope
this helps.
