Mooney M20J fuel selector question

Recommended Posts

I just started flying the Carenado Mooney M20J. 


The fuel selector in the cockpit has 3 positions:  Left, Right and Off.  There is no "both" option.


Is there any way to have fuel drawn from both tanks simultaneously?


If not, what is the correct procedure to allocate fuel while in flight?    Switch tanks at prescribed intervals?   Or use all the fuel in one tank before switching to the other tank.  Wouldn't this cause an imbalance situation?


Thanks for any information.
