Fuel Tanks Empty



  • Fresh installation of Arrow III v.4. Full load of fuel applied in set up menu. Load flight, turn on battery, select fuel tank and...nothing. Both fuel gauges read zero. Turn on pump to prime, of course no fuel pressure because there's no fuel.

    Uninstalled/reinstalled, no fix
    Removed all other files from Community, no fix
    Uninstalled v.4 and reinstalled v.1. Boom, fuel.
    Uninstalled v.1 and reinstalled v.4 again. No fuel.
    Just for kicks, cycled all the breakers...
    Loaded other default aircraft just to make sure I'm not missing something silly, they all work fine.

    Anybody else seeing this?



  • Have you tried adding fuel after loading into a flight? I recall someone having this problem a long time ago, I can't remember exactly how they fixed it

    Well, I'll be hanged...that was it! Strange that it doesn't save it from the previous screen but I'll take the fix. Thanks for the tip!



  • @Brianmac60 You probably have save state enabled. After you load into the plane, save state takes over and overwrites whatever fuel you put in with the fuel you had last flight. So either you finished with empty tanks somehow, or maybe the saved state got corrupted.
