King Air drains backup fuel tanks first

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking i'm doing something wrong.  I can't get the B200 to use fuel from the primary fuel tanks first.  Always seems to use up the backup tanks then takes fuel from the primary.  Anyone have an idea what i'm doing wrong?  Thanks.

Taken directly from B200 Technical manual


When auxiliary fuel is available, this system
automatically transfers fuel from the auxiliary
tank to the nacelle tank. No pilot action is involved."
I read it that Aux tanks are used up first with no action involved, maybe some one will correct but that how I see it.
