737 Aux fuel tanks

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to add aux fuel tanks to the 737 that I'm not aware of? I'm trying to fly from SFO to Heathrow in a BBJ 737 (repaint of course) and am running into a fuel limitation. Is this planned to be implemented in the future or am I missing something?

Nope.

I doubt that anyone in the real world will fly a B737 on that route, am I missing something?

Just thought I would do it for fun, It can do it but requires 50,000 lbs of fuel when the -800 can only carry 46. So close yet so far.

My work around is to add extra payload equal to the excess fuel before flight. At some point (before needing to turn off center fuel pumps) I add the fuel and delete the extra payload. It's not perfect but it works.  You will need to ignore the "Insufficient Fuel" warning on the FMC for quite awhile though. 

This has been an on and off topic for a long time. There has been no interest so far by PMDG to fix it though.
