   Hi! Do I have to manually empty the default fuel in the A/C before I start, for exemplar, a short turn? I used the Auto Ground Operation for the first time today and no fuel was added automatic. In real life operation it´s impossible to fill an already max fueled tank. In the B744 simulator, I have no idea how it works.

Please note PMDG rules ask for full names on all posts.

The way the PMDG products work is that fuel levels are based on the panel state.  Starting a session with a default state and you get full tanks.  I always use my own panel states to start a session, for example I have configured the aircraft, air and power, doors and support vehicles as if the aircraft has arrived at a gate with maybe 18000 lbs fuel, on ground air/power, unloaded pax and is at the point where I calculate the fuel load for the next flight and and I save this either as GAP (ground air/power) or GAPSV (ground air/power and service vehicles).  Once this panel state is created and saved, I can then use it to quickly set up the aircraft in that configuration even if I started the session in a default configuration.

You can also set the "Previous Flight" state as default panel state. Your aircraft will be loaded as you leave it the last flight.
