Breakdown of the mass of propellant required for station keeping for each of the six spacecraft. The spacecraft are listed in order of heliocentric angular separation from Venus. The associated propellant mass required for station keeping, over the lifetime of the mission, is shown per spacecraft.

Spacecraft number Angular separation from Venus (°) Propellant mass for station keeping (kg)
1 30 16.6
2 90 19.9
3 150 16.8
4 210 14.0
5 270 16.8
6 330 18.0
