Hi all.


Ive started flying the P40 a lot recently but have noticed that when i fly with 25%, for example, the fuel gauge stays at that level and doesnt go down. Ive actually run out of fuel a couple of times because the gauge stll showed 25%.

Any ideas??


Also the P63 has 2 fuel gauges.....which should i use to judge the amount i have.


Thanks.

The P-40 have NO fuel gauge, but only a low fuel warning light located up left of the cockpit.
Which gauge are you looking at?? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif

Fuel gauge is on the floor next to the right ruddre pedal, but don't bother looking at it since it has never worked.

Its at the bottom right. It has oil temp. oil pressure(?) and fuel all in the same gauge.

fuel pressure is not the same as fuel status http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
you can "barely" see the notworking fuel gouge left of the right rudder pedal http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Nice one thanks.

I didnt realise that was fuel pressure. Thanks for the cockpit reference.
