Hi
First, let me tell you what a great surprise this aircraft has been to me. A joy to fly and some fine details such as the oscillating compass make for a nice experience.

I have two issues with the engines, even if I set the fuel and pressure selectors as per checklist.
1) After some minutes flying, the engine regularly quits.
2) If I restart after an engine shutdown, I'm unable to switch to the fill tank as per checklist. I have to stick on the main tank instead.

Looks like I've drained the fill gravity tank? If I look at the P3D "Fuel and Payload" dialog, I see Center3 tank is empty.

May you please help me to understand this?
Thanks in advance and keep up the great work.

Hello rosariomanzo,

I have a question: were you flying on winter conditions with the temperature below 0C/38F ? If so, you have to do the following before the flight:
1. Turn the engine off
2. Open the panel (shift+1) and click "apply engine cover"
3. Start the engine (even by clicking ctrl+e)

The engine failure could be initiaded by carb icing.
Please test this procedure and let me know if it works or not. The engine cover was designed for flying in a bad weather on the Italian front and Alpine countryside.
Thank you very much for your kind words regarding our plane!

Regards,
Lucas
