Vanishing fuel load...

Recommended Posts

For a trans Atlantic flight (Gatwick to Reagan) I set up my fuel load (fully loaded) and all looks good (with FSP verfied through FS9)... I then go to my FMC to get it set up, but when my Perf Init page comes up it shows only about a half of my load (~141k lbs). Then, if I pull down the PMDG fuel to check... I only have 141k lbs of fuel with my main center tank empty and main 2 and 3 only at a half load. Where did the rest of the fuel go? Cancelling the FSP flight and redoing the fuel doesn't help because as soon as I get into the FMC the fuel load goes back down again.This just started happening, I've been making FSP flights happily for a couple days with no issues.

If yes, then no wonder. PMDG manual states you should not be using the FS9 fuel utility to fuel this aircraft - only the one that came with the aircraft.

>how does using only the PMDG fueling interact with>FSPassenger, which also loads fuel?rather badly ... :(You may go to the old forum and find posts on this subject. If my memory serves me right there was some workaround found by people who have FSPassangers. But officially these two products are not compatible with one another.Michael J.http://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/pmdg_744F.jpghttp://www.hifisim.com/images/asv_beta_member.jpg

After starting a flight with FSP go to PMDG/Options/Fuel menu and set desired fuel load. FSP has no problem with that.Vangelis===================================== E. M. Vaos Precision Manuals Development Group www.precisionmanuals.com=====================================

Thanks guys... I figured it out to simply change the fuel load through PMDG AFTER getting FSP started. Thanks for the help. BTW, nothing more frustrating that having some idiot in a 777 fly up your butt and hit you as your just flaring to land. Anyone know why the FS9 "AI" (which in reality is really AS - Artificial Stupidity) is so ignorant as to NOT notice there's an airplane in their way?Is there a program or something out there that makes "AI" just a bit more "I"?
