Fuel Crossfeed

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Does anyone know how to operate the fuel crossfeed on this aeroplane.Putting the crossfeed valve to open and shutting one of the fuel pumps does not seem to have any effect.

If you use the hotel mode prior to startup,you get a fuel inbalance and it would be nice to equalize fuel tanks during cruise flight.

Yes,and I now know that the best thing to do is to put the fuel crossfeed valve to open at the beginning of the flight.This does indeed keep the

fuel tanks balanced.

I don't understand. If crossfeed isn't modelled, why does opending the crossfeed valve keep the fuel balanced?
