I just deliberately ran the center tanks dry:Heres the results with the NG patched to 1.1Fuel gone in screen shot:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/33340.jpgFuel pressure lights on as center tank ran dry:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/33341.jpgMaster Caution alarm with FUEL displayed:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/33342.jpgNo engines quit running, fuel started flowing from both left and right tanks evenly. Either this is a FS2002 issue (as you can see it works just fine in FS9), or your patch is not installed cleanly.Ray

I'm not completely certain as details are lacking, but what I think Scott might be referring to is the same problem I've got.For comparison sake, when I was commanding the DF737 it was explicitly written that the aft and forward #1 & #2 fuel pumps be turned on (in other words the bottom four fuel pump switches) while leaving the center fuel pumps off. Doing that on the NG results in fuel being pulled from the right tank exclusively. I even went so far in a flight to where the right tank indicator turned yellow and announced in small letters "imbalance".The next flight I went ahead and turned on the center fuel pumps as suggested in a tutorial I saw for this aircraft and it proceeded to pull fuel from both the center fuel tank and the left fuel tank while leaving the right tank full.Now, this was done before patch 1.1 and after and it still does the same thing....I'm probably missing something but at this point of the evening I'm too tired to care too much.RegardsChuck Nevin
