Fuel Tank selector

Post BM357_TinMan »

Is the fuel tank selector ever going to be fixed?

As it is, when it is switched, it only changes the GAUGE not the draw. So even if you have tank 2 selected (as an example) the gauge tells you how much fuel is in tank 2 but the sim still draws from tank 1 until it is exhausted, then it draws from tank 2 etc......

I asked about this a few months ago and never got a response concerning it (I don't think.....)

I'm going from memory here(always a dangerous thing to do) but, I believe that is the way it functions in real life.

Hi. Pop up 2D panel for fuel controling (shift+6). Two things there:
1. Operate the fuel selector to choose the feeding tank.
2. Operate the gauge switch to choose the content to measure. The upper scale is for rear tank while the lower sclae is for front tank. Or read the tooltip.

is the feeder switch not modeled in the V/C? I know the gauge switch is because that is teh one that is slightly hidden under the left side of the panel, but is teh feeder not modeled then?

If it is modeled in the V/C, where can I find it. Thanks

The fuel selector lever is on the opposite side below the altimeter. It's animated via 2D panel.
