# 1   Posted · Report post

Hallo fellow pilots.

i dont find in the manuals any indication to how to set fuel pumps for a long haul.

Dont wanna to run out of fuel in one tank during the flight, expecially when i am not at the cockpit!

I miss too indications about fuel flow (wich tank burn first etc.).

Hope that someone could help.

Cheers

Hi,

You should always use fuel from the tank at the center of the plane to the tanks furthest away from the center of the plane. Only during take off you have to use wing tanks to feed the engines.

As long as you don't turn OFF the fuel supplies, you should be relatively safe.

For take off, switch on the fuel pumps for the main wing tanks, and after take off you switch on the wing tank fuel pumps. When the center fuel tank is empty, turn off those fuel pumps. When the wing tanks are almost empty you should switch on the auxiliary wing tank fuel pumps.
