Thanks for help on my previous post

It seems that only ONE tank is being used for fuel on the 747. (right Aux) when its empty thats it NO more fuel. I tinkered with the FE panel to no avail when the RA is out the engines die..Help

This isnt in the manual? I cant answer it, but I can forward it to the technical guys. I would think the flight tutorial will give an answer as well, give it a read.

That's great that you found the solution to the tank problem. Well I have scoured the manual and the tutorial and its s no go. How about sharing the secret with those of us less gifted in auditing? B)

I had this same problem, and it only happened since upgrading my computer AND
my version of FSX to Acceleration, I had trouble with a lot of the default planes
as well as Aerosim and then the CLS 747.

I was sure it was some broken gauge or dll or some such complicated thing, when I
finally figured it out... well you be the judge....

The problem is the default plane/flight, I am not sure if this changed from the
original FSX install, but in my case I had a Cessna as the default, I happen to
load it and saw that only one fuel tank was used as well, THEN I remembered that
there is a selector, its down on the floor, well, guess what, uhuh, it was set to
left tank...

The thing that really is infuriating about the Microsoft design, is just how far
reaching these stupid little things can be :)

So, all I had to do was move the tank select to BOTH, then resave my default flight,
this fixed the problem for every plane I had problems with.

I'm ecstatic to have finally figured it out anyway, lol.
