[NO BUG]Mi-8 fuel gauge stuck?
 
Hi all, my fuel gauge seems to show the same fuel quantity, whether I refuel or not. I've found some other posts indicating similar things maybe happen with other Russian aircraft perhaps because it measures only cumulative fuel flow (as opposed to actual current fuel level), but I'm struggling to find something on this for the Mi-8. I'm also not sure why it indicates the same quantity regardless of how much I start with (from mission start).

Any ideas on what to do?

Have you set the fuel gauge selector to display fuel from the respective tanks you want to see?

There is a fuel tank selector close to the gauge. By default I think it is set in feed tanks which are always full (except when you are out of fuel in the rest of the tanks)

You need to move the selector switch to the tank you want to see or the full "internal" position.

Theres the switch next to a fuel pumps on foward overhead panel when you refuel the plane you have to set it on up position

Ah, the fuel gauge selector was the solution. Thanks for the tip!
