Changing the order of fuel tank usage. Can it be changed?

Recommended Posts

Hi,A question about fuel & tanks..I'm setting up a 5 tank system in the cgf file: looking like this:[fuel]Center1 = -29.000, 0.000, 0.000, 7700.00, 0.00LeftMain = -49.000, -14.600, -4.000, 6545.00, 0.00RightMain= -49.000, 14.600, -4.000, 6545.00, 0.00LeftAux = -49.000, -20.000, -4.500, 1155.000, 0.000RightAux = -49.000, 20.000, -4.500, 1155.000 0.000The air file has been edited to have the same tanks & values, so that they match.When the plane is running it drains the L & R Aux tanks FIRST automatically before stating to use the L & R Main tanks...Basically I need the OPPOSITE, so that it automatically drains from the MAIN tanks first, leaving the AUX tanks until last.... Can this be changed somewhere to do so??? I Don't want to be having to select switches all the time either to do it. I want it to be an automatic selection like it currently is, just in the opposite order. (ie: Mains FIRST, AUX last)Look forward to an answerCheersAl

Hi,It is possible to set the fuelselectors for the tanks dependant of the quantities in the tanks.Say:If MAIN>2,AUX>2,CENTER>2 then set fuelselectors for CENTER.If quantity MAIN>2,AUX>2,CENTER<2 then select MAIN.If quantity MAIN<2,AUX>2,CENTER<2 then select AUX.etc, etc...Jan"Procul Negotiis"

Hi,Of course you have to code a gauge in XML (Or C).That gauge tells the engine(s) what tank(s) to use.It sets the fuelselector(s) to that tankCan be completely automatic.Jan"Procul Negotiis"
