900 miles is certainly doable, with IFR reserves, with 200+ US gallons onboard. The 414 can cruise at 30 GPH (LOP) total, and 35 GPH (LOP) for the 421.

Will a 421 carry enough fuel to fly 900 nm with IFR reserves (at least 1 hr at normal cruise after flying an approach) with four "normal size" adult pax plus one pilot?

Well, obviously, there’s a huge variable of wind. Also, I would need to know EXACTLY what fuel capacity the plane has. They can vary, a lot.

All of the 414 and 421 aircraft are capable of a over 200 KTAS on a trip, but they need to get up in the thin air to do that. For 900 miles, let’s just call that number 4.5 hours at 200 KTAS with ZERO WIND. With your one hour reserve, that’s 5.5 hours to zero reserve:

414 with 183 to 203 gallons onboard at 30 GPH (LOP) = 6.0 to 6.7 hours endurance
421 with 170 to 213 gallons onboard at 35 GPH (LOP) = 4.8 to 6.0 hours endurance

If it's not fatter than average, yes. Full fuel payloads are often > 1,000 lbs. 900 miles is doable on full fuel.

Side rant: Why is it that every time some says "I'm looking for a (random piston twin)" someone here responds with "You need a Pilatus." Have any of you priced one of those recently? The cheapest one on controller is over $2M, and it needs an engine overhaul in 53 hours.

Seriously, stop mentioning the platypus in piston threads. If a guy is asking about piston twins he has a piston twin budget. At least an older 90 series KA can be price competitive.

Rant over.
