wombat Posted May 13 Author Report Share Posted May 13 I don't know how all of the rest of you are filling the tanks, but when I've filled the plane with long range tanks, (I've done it twice now total in my life!! hahaha) I take both fuel caps off of one side, fill one of them, then immediately go and fill the other, then go back to the first. I don't see how that could possibly leave room for 4.5 gallons per side more because of fuel moving between the tanks. There is maybe 15 seconds between filling one and then the other. The second time I did this, after filling both tanks fully (going A->B->A) I then set the fuel nozzle down and gave the plane a good shake and was able to get roughly another gallon in, but I couldn't see the fuel meter from the plane so I don't know exactly how much more I got. But when I shook the plane again after that, the fuel level didn't seem to change in either tank. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
