Crew Engineer Name: Louis Maller
Diesel – 1/4
Propane – 60
Gasoline (5 Gallon containers for ATV) –  2 full containers
Water (trailer) measured in cm from the bottom–    10in / 42in i.e. 25.4cm/106.6cm
Water (static) measured in cm from the top – 31in / 42in i.e. 78.7cm/106.6cm
Trailer to Static Pump used – 5in i.e. 12.7cm
Water (loft) – 11 gallons
Static to Loft Pump used – 0 gallons
Water Meter: 104 517.7
Atv # Oil Checked:  all ATVs full
Atv # Fuel Used Gals:  all ATVs not used
Atv # Tires Status:  #3 tires slightly under-inflated; other seem OK
Atv # Hours Used Day:  all ATVs not used
Atv # Notes and Comments:   All ATVs have difficulties to get started, would be a good idea to have a look at the batteries
Summary of Engineering activities: Static tank filled from loft tank. ATVs have been checked and we have tried to start them.

Questions and Concerns to Mission Support:

Shannon suggested we fill as much as possible the Static Tank. This might allow us not to have to fill it again during sim.

For the different water measures, they are indicated from the bottom of the tank as requested. The ruler used to measure is graduated in inches and is the first measure indicated. I have then converted to metric as required. (I have indicated /106.6cm as the total height of the container)

Under “Water Meter” I indicated the number shown by the measuring device installed next to the loft tank, if this is not the expected measure, please tell me.
We hope that the radio issue will be fixed soon, in order to be able to do more than 2-person EVAs
It could be nice if the ATVs could be functional rapidly too. We have been told they will to be seen to tomorrow
