Not using fuel.

Recommended Posts

I have taken several multi hour flights but the fuel guages stay on full. Does anyone know how to correct this?

Look at your "Realism" settings in FSX. Uncheck "Unlimited Fuel"
That´s strange. I´ve unchecked that and the gauges stay on full. But the tooltips give the correct read out that I´m burning fuel. Is that a bug?

Same here, front is burning, tool tip is correct, gauge is a little high, rear is stuck on full, tooltip correct, and now after 4 hrs total flying, rear gauge starts to drop slowly. I also noticed the engines will start with fuel valves at cutoff, if you move them into the green the engines keep going, then back to cutoff the engines will stop. Would like to be able to open the luggage door seperately. Also when checking the engines before takeoff, only the fuel flow drops when you switch the mag's, the rpm's dont move. It would be nice if the manual refered to the speeds in kts, instead of mph. I think everything is in kts in the cockpit unless I'm mistaken. I have also tried to overheat the rear engine, hot weather, cowls closed, full RPM with parking brakes but no luck, the aircraft had an uissue with overheat, maybe I'm doing something wrong. Some small bugs, love the plane though :-)

Stupid question, have you guys "switched" the taps to the tanks on the overhead? They are set to "OFF" by default, but the engines stay running. I always switch mine to the green and the gauges work fine.

Just checked by placing the plane on the runway, setting the parking brake, applying full power and setting the simulation rate to x64.....Tool tips, forward and aft tank indications simultaneously decrease

Tool tips are useless, the gauges themselves have to move.

That's what I said......tooltips and the indications move....I'm glad that the gauges themselves aren't moving! wink.png

By default, all aircraft are loaded into the sim with fuel cocks set (internally) to ALL tanks. The programmer must make certain to code an initialization routine to overcome these default conditions and set up the systems the way they want them to be... :)

Got you, not quite whats happening my end, but it's not a big deal, treat it as an old and battered aircraft with some niggles as they all probably have and maybe it's more life like after all! Im off to explore some more Orbxy with it.

That´s interesting. I´ll test that out.
