Since this involves FUEL and its calculating implications, i would like to also add these links for a more indepth study for my colleagues here

A basic idealogy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flight_planning#Fuel_calculation

ICAO suggests http://www.icao.int/icao/en/env/Caep_Template.pdf

FAA says www.faa.gov/about/plans_reports/Performance/performancetargets/details/Aviation_Fuel_Efficiency.doc

This link should help you too http://www.azcommerce.com/pdf/newenergy/glossary.pdf

On the topic of towing the Aircraft to the runway:-
1.You'll need one tug per Aircraft & space to get the tug back to the bay.
2.In case of a tug breakdown,added confusion by getting more repair vehicles on the Taxtrack/runway.
3.In case of Engine start.Ground personnell with Grd fire Extinguishers would need to walk the distance accompanying the Aircraft & during Engine start.Which is not safe.
