Fueling an Airliner

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just curious on what is the process of fueling a plane that has center tanks and other aux tanks. Does the fueler fill the wings first and then center tanks or center tanks first and the wing if more fuel is needed?Thanks,Bill

usually there is a fuel computer at a single point fuel station (for some reason the right wing is the popular choice, i'm guessing because the jetbridge is on the other side generally). the computer can then guide the fuel from the single point adapter to where it needs to go. the computer can be overridden and done in manual mode, but why do that. there is also overwing fuel capability as a backup if the single point adapter breaks.
