Center fuel pumps FO turning off

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I installed Version 2.0 today, thank you for the great product.

 

One issue maybe: my FO turns off the center fuel pumps although center tanks contained still 38,5 kg, wing tanks still full.

 

Regards

 

Ralf

Hi Ralf,

 

Thank you!
 

The trigger is when the pump light illuminates (low pressure).

Hi Brian,

 

There might be an issue here with V2.0.

 

Just climbed out from EDDF enroute to KSFO, and FO turned center fuel pumps off, with wingtanks full and centertank still containing 28300 Kg.

hello.

I also can confirm something is wrong with this. at some moment during the climb FO said 'centre fuel pumps coming off' despite the pumps were already off as we took off with no fuel in centre tanks.

Further to post #3

 

I switched the center fuel pumps back on, and later in the flight when the pump light illuminates (low pressure), the FO does not switch

the center fuel pumps off.

Since you're taking a look at this Bryan is fs2crew able to see the fuel quantity? Because the procedure is to turn the center fuel pumps off in the cruise when it reaches 3,000lbs and have the aircraft transfer the remaining fuel via scavenge pumps which happens automatically when the wing tanks reach about half

I just fixed the center fuel pump issue.

 

If any of you could help confirm the updated logic to ensure it's okay, please send me a Support Ticket and I'll send you a new gauge.
