Sorry, I forgot to scroll down for the message;it's been a while. Im having a
problem with fuel consumption on long flights with aircraft that have more thanone fuel tank. When the aux. tank runs out, and switches to the main tank, I
lose an engine. If I am not in the room, the plane loses power and crashes to
the ground. Any solutions? Mutt?
Do you have it set up to auto switch?
If not then you want to do that.
Otherwise what I do is make sure that the wing tanks and aux tanks feed into
a centerline tank( as in real aircraft). Even small puddle jumpers have a head
tank that the mains feed into. The other thing to check ,see if the silly thing
has a fuel pump or booster pump. I know in FS2k2Pro if it has the switch on the
dash then it has it in the airfile and is acknowledged by the sim...so you
wanna get used to using it...although using it and forgetting that you are
usually results in the engine flooding out and if your not high enough to
continue to fly and crank the motor over to finally dry it out and get it
started....well you know the drill.
