External refueling

Recommended Posts

Greetings,from reading other posts I understand that loading fuel with an external program (I have Fuel Loader) is not possible due to the complexity of the fuel system.As these posts where a little older, I want to ask if a solution has been found in the meantime.ThanksBoris

It's possible, but not guaranteed, that an exernal loader will work if used with the sim in pause mode.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile

Dear all:As a matter of fact, I tried yesterday this fuel planner with the tinmouse:http://www.volny.cz/fs2002/B737FPL/B737FPL.htmAnd it worked flawlessly, it can also be registered in FSUIPC, it reads the actual payload, and after estimating fuel, it transfers it to the tanks. What I am not very sure about, it's the precision of the fuel calculation algorithm, I landed with quite a lot of fuel, but it is better than nothing ;-).Hope it works for you. :-)Blue skies for you.

Gentlemen,thanks for your hints. This is what happens:When in pause mode, the fuel is loaded (fuel gauges are working). As soon as I unpause, the fuel is being reset to the level it was when loading the flight.This also happens when I create a new flight: FS uses to fill the tanks to 100%, and as soon as the A/C is loaded, the fuel is being set to some value I don't know where it comes from (it is 9385lbs or 98,1% in each wing tank, center tank empty in case this should be important).Any further ideas?Boris

Hi,ave you've been able to fix or workaround that issue? I'm experiencing the same behaviour. No matter how i load fuel (using external programm like fuel loader or using the fs internal "fuel and loading" option) after a fraction of a second all tanks are full again. :-(Any help would be appreciated!janosch

You need to pause the sim before refueling.
