External Tanks - Fuel Usage Order?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Do you burn fuel out to in, or in to out?

 

Only the outer tanks have an empty light. Is that because they're used first?

The JF-17 is not better than the F-16; it's different. It's how you fly that counts.

Depends on the setting, default setting is to pump from internal fuel tanks only, if I remember correctly. The light indicates either empty or not present drop tanks. Please refer to the most convinient manual.

Also note that once the outer are dry and you switch to the inner external tanks, you'll need to occassionally scan your main fuel gauge (right lower) front panel to notice when the main fuselage tanks are starting to be used. When the needle starts to move off "30" (30 x 100 lbs) that indicates that the inner tanks are dry!

 

S!
