Left tank won't fill....

Recommended Posts

Here's a little niggle I have to deal with occasionally, maybe someone has a work aorund?Having completed a couple of flights, I go to the fuel menu in FS2004 and add a couple of tons to the left and right tanks. All looks ok as I hit OK, but then the aircraft gauges show that only the right tank has been filled??? I go back to the fuel screen, and whoops, it is showing that the fuel wasn't added to the left tank. So, I type in the amount again and go back to the aircraft....same thing happens. Eventually it filled, but only after a lot of random fuel pump switch cycling and turning the power on and off for a few mins!!!Is there a little bug here, or am I being really daft? :):)C130

Press the "Pause" button and then top off the left tank. If the APU is running FS won't allow you to add fuel to the tank since the APU is drawing fuel from that tank.
