Recommended Posts

Hello,Often, I got a : Fuel Config on my EICAS, and when I look on the overhead panel, I noticed that one tank has more fuel than the other...I would like to know how manage that to transfer fuel from the left tank to the right one. I think that it's a game with pomp and cross feed... But I don't know how...Can you explain to me please ?Thanks!

Sorry Norman, I find the solution on the OPS Flight Manual... I had the choice to delet my topic but maybe this problem/solution will help another pilot who have the same "FUEL CONFIG" message...Does my explication is correct Norman regarding the Fuel Pumps and transfer?Have a nice weekend!
