Adding Aux. Fuel Tank

Recommended Posts

First let me thank all involved for developing such a great addon.I would like to add the 810gal auxiliary fuel tank into a B732 Executive repaint I've downloaded. However I'm not sure how to add fuel tanks into an aircraft. Is it OK to use the "Right Wingtip" tank moved to the correct location for this purpose? Otherwise how would one add a new fuel tank?Thanks,Morgan

No, that will not work. The panel just looks for the presence of the tip tank as a way to determine whether or not the Eric Cantu/FFX model or the Terry Gaff model is being used, so it can send the right commands to control the spoiler animations, landing lights etc. It does not feed fuel from the tip tank.The fuel feed logic is hard-coded into the panel...without going back and looking at my code, I don't know what to recommend, but you're more than likely going to end up with a poor or non-functioning fuel system if you add another tank. There are also some weight and balance/trim considerations with the FDE.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile
