    Thanks for the good info, but the Dover scenery doesn't show any fuel triggers - at least none that anyone's been able to identify after close scrutiny, and that's the root problem. ADE shows no fuel triggers; none of the examined BGL files do either. Can't delete what cannot be seen. Refueling occurs across the entire parking apron, but how/why it is happening remains unclear.

    In the meantime I'm returning to TeamSDB's now out-of-print Military Airfields Set #1 Dover AFB scenery, and fixed that one's problem: grass textures bleeding through the Dover runways during landings - by raising the entire airport's elevation two feet above it's original altitude, a technique others have used for scenery with the same problem. The elevation change isn't noticeable and no more runways sinking into the ground during final approach.

    Maybe it is not a scenery issue, does this happen with all airplanes? Recommend you test with a default plane.

    Also, there is nothing in FSX to prevent fueling when a door is open. In fact, if you try to open a door while your airplane is in a fuel trigger it will automatically close.

    Fueling occurs in the parking apron with each and every plane I've tested in John's Dover scenery.

    The default Dover AFB only has one parking spot and that's at the fuel station. If that parking spot was copied and pasted to create the others in this new scenery, that would be the cause of this problem. Perhaps deleting all the existing parking spots and creating new ones would fix it?

    There are six files named 0_kdov_n.bgl

    Move them out of the active scenery folder and the fuel issue goes away.

    Could have swore I mentioned that. But like all my posts across the Internet no one can listen.

    Actually, that is not at all what you said...

    I am saying that I do know those files are causing the issue.

    Yeah, I didn't test to remove those files, but I kinda figured perhaps that was where the fuel trigger was. I just mentioned it for the user to be prudent and try removing those six BGLs and see what happened.

    Thanks to all who looked at this anomaly. John's scenery has the great museum planes on display, and I miss that in the SDB version.
