fuel quantities in flight

Recommended Posts

Guest VCALL

hii've experienced this problem severall times both in the 330 and in the 340.The thing is:the fuel quantities are different in the left and right tanks, after a few hours flying, usually this can go up tp 1500 kg leading to some unusual behavoiur manually flying (one side heavier). The nubers for the fuel comsumption and used are the same for both engines.As anyone got this problem and why is it happening?

Hi VCALL ,Try turning on the Fuel X-Feed on the Overhead " FUEL " section , although you shouldnt need to use it all the time , try it anyway.I dont know what else could be up with it.Calum

I'm having the same problem. Just got the 330 today. I already have the 340. Did a flight from KPDX to RJAA and the fuel got out of balance. So I used the x feed and got them balanced, but once I turned off the x feed they got out again. The #1 engine seemed to use more fuel.

i've already tried having just the xfeed on and pumps on, x feed on and pumps on the bad side off (for balance), and the thing still persists.Maybe just a bug.easy to control, but it doesn't allow much room to go watch tv, if the levels are low, maybe i can run out of fuel:)
