Nameless,If there is any fuel in the centre tank you have to burn it first, this is done by activating all fuel pumps. The system then burns the centre tank fuel first automatically, and that one being empty it will automatically continue with burning the wing tanks fuel. You may then turn off the centre tank pumps.Regars,Markus
