PMDG Fuel imbalance
Posted 25 March 2006 - 08:59 AM
I'm currently sitting on the taxiway at EGLL looking like this..
As you can see, somehow, some of my fuel has shifted into the right wing..
I'm I trial and error kind of guy, so have been flicking switches to try and solve this problem and my overhead is currently looking like this...
I've tried in vain to pump the juice back but I'm obviously doing something wrong, so can anyone proficient in the Boeing 747-400 let me know which switches I have to push, so I can get rid of these Fuel imbalance messages and get on my merry way to Singapore..
Thanks in advance

Quote from manual '11 Aircraft Systems' :
easily the most complex part of the airplane
from a behavior and logic standpoint. This
portion of the airplane took more than 10
weeks to program because of its complexity
and automation behaviors, and because of
the severe limitations imposed on fuel usage
by the primitive fuel tank model used by
Microsoft Flight Simulator 9.
In order to accurately simulate the fuel
system on the 747-400, it was necessary to
develop tools to allow the user to change the
fuel load in the airplane without using the
default MSFS fuel menu.
To change the fuel load in the airplane, use
the PMDG/OPTIONS/VARIOUS menu, and
scroll your mouse wheel over the fuel figure
to increase or decrease the figure to suit
When you then hit OK the fuel requested
will be loaded on the aircraft, properly
configured for the correct tanks based upon
the quantity loaded.
The PMDG 747-400 fuel system maintains a
perpetual fuel figure, so leaving the
simulator and returning (at the end of a
flight, for example) will instruct the simulator
to reload the fuel-on-board figure from when
you left the simulator.
We recommend that under no circumstance
should you use the default MSFS fuel
loading menu, as this will create
unpredictable and undesired results with the

And beside the 3 packs, you should have R and L ISLN on.
