A330 Refueling In A330

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

So I've initiated fueling on the ground via the MCDU. In cruise and the aircraft is constantly refueling. Bug or incorrect procedure?

I have seen the same issue. 5 hours into the flight and fuel level has not gone down.

Have you been using GSX2?

 

Yes. Don't tell me there was some incompatibility I missed?

 

Oh, and to add to the list of bugs, 17 tonne per hour fuel flow @ FL 370 (winds 267/046)

And are you sure you are not set to unlimited fuel?

 

Absolutely positive. I am indeed using GSX2.

Probably the same.

 

 

If it's of any importance, I use GSX2 with the A330 Air Canada, I have no issue with the refueling.

We know, the main issue is that this one of those issues that must have multiple aspects.

We are working on it. But we did not get it fixed for the 1.0.0.2 update. We will let you know on the release notes when we believe it has been fixed.

I've found that sometimes the FOB quantity is not decreasing by the same amount fuel used is increasing. For example, during my last flight (SAME-SCEL) my block fuel after leaving the gate was 11600 kg. After burning 1500 Kg (as seen on the¨F.Used in  ECAM Fuel page) I should have 10100 Kg of FOB. But sometimes this quantity is higher. In this particular case. I landed with 8640 Kg of FOB and 4430 kg of Fuel Used. It means that my block fuel was13070 Kg, when I had left the gate with only 11600. At some momentin flight the fuel quantity increased by about 1500 Kg.

Hi All,

 

I too experienced this bug yesterday - initially with GSX2, but then with manual re-refuelling - interestingly I noticed with GSX2 that once the aircraft was fuelled, that I got a second fuel truck, although it didn't actually add any fuel, that is when the RefuelG stuck on the display.

 

Had a 2 great first flights yesterday though with the A330, even if my landings were over 500fpm due to the weight! ;)

I have put the right fuel and weights according to pfpx and the file uploaded for A330 by Aerosoft here and my fuel is finally not enough to my destination.

@Leopard 2 hell a bit more information is needed.

What are you using to calculate the fuel. Aerosoft Fuel Planner? PFPX? SimBrief?

By saying your fuel is not enough to your destination does that mean that you actually ran out of fuel or the FMGS is predicting that you are going to run out of fuel at some point?
