Engine quits when one tank runs out of fuel

Recommended Posts

Hi

I need some help about this issue.

Version is 1.12, purchased via Justflight.

I've understood from the manual that the four wing tanks (inboard/outboard) feed fuel via engine driven pumps, outboard first, then inboard, then central.

Unfortunately, each time one single tank runs out of fuel, the engine quits and I have to restart (using the interactive checklist).

More, I've noticed that fuel is taken from right tank only. When I use the transfer pump, fuel is taken by the right tank. This happens for both inboard and outboard tanks.

Shouldn't the fuel be taken automatically by the inboard tanks when fuel ends in outboard?

Maybe a problem with my software (I've reinstalled several times with no luck)?

Maybe I'm doing something wrong?

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

 

With kind regards

I'm having this same problem, when a tank runs out of fuel the engine dies.

I am also facing this problem in every flight.

 

Could the developers please comment?

I think this is a bug indeed, when we reopen the project it will be fixed. Of course it is very bad practise to let a tank run dry as you will suck up the dirt in the tank. Always leave 5% at least.
