Does the fuel limitation in F1 include the warmup lap?

That the total amount of fuel in Formula 1 races are limited to a 100 kilograms. Must the team take into account the use of fuel on the initial outlap and warmup laps?

The 100 kg limitation is only for the race, from start to finnish. So there is more than 100 kilograms of fuel initally, because the car will need to drive the warmup and post race lap. In addition there needs to be a liter of fuel left in the tank for testing by the race officials.
