Default Fuel tank contents

Hello,

I’m new to the C-101EB and enjoying what I got

Something I don‘t understand is the set fuel in mission editor.
It‘s set to 84% per default but I don‘t think this corresponds to fuel in center fuselage and center Wing only, as the green transfer indicators are on after energizing fuel Pumps.

What are exact contents of the different tanks?
1469kg in fuselage and center wing? How is it split between both tanks
522kg outer wing?

Thanks for your help
Jens

84% fuel is the full fuel load minus a little more than a single outer wing tank (666 lbs /302 kg), it doesn't make a lot of sense but perhaps I'm missing something ?

From the E-25 C-101EB flight manual

Normal (approx 71% fuel in DCS)

• Center fuselage = 1984 lbs , 1155 liters (1916 lbs/1115 ltr usable)
• Center Wing = 988 lbs, 575 liters (948 lbs/552 ltr usable)

Total : 2972 lbs (1348 kg) = 1730 liters of which 1667 liters is usable

Ferry Flight (100% fuel in DCS)

plus
• x2 outer wing tanks @ 588 lbs, 342 liters (576 lbs/335 ltr usable) each

Total : 4148 lbs (1882 kg) = 2414 liters of which 2337 liters is usable
