Do all three tanks drain at same time?

 

Do I need to use the fuel Transfer?

Which tanks get filled first? Wing tanks then ventral tank.

 

Do all three tanks drain at same time? No, if using full fuel use the ventral tank to transfer fuel when wing tanks are 3,300 lbs. Fuel is only supposed to be drained from the wing tanks.

 

Do I need to use the fuel Transfer? Yes but it doesn't work properly. AUX Fuel Transfer used to transfer ventral tank to wing tanks. In game it just uses fuel from the ventral tank so make sure you shut it down and go back to wing tanks before it gets empty. For XFEED, you switch that on if fuel imbalance goes above 500 lbs.

 

Where is the Ventral tank quantity displayed?

 

Over on the Copilot's MFD. It'll show empty when under 2% fuel remaining.

 

And how do I reset the fuel used in the FMS? Not sure about this one, maybe someone else can chime in. I think it's part of the performance pages.
