Captain Posted September 13, 2008 Share Posted September 13, 2008 I am hoping for feedback from any other J owners or users with wet wings, and apologise if this has been discussed before but I have done a search and can't find anything. When I built my 230 I went to the trouble of trying to route the fuel supply to the head tank so that it would draw evenly from both wings ..... and ran fuel lines separately from each wing to a T-piece just before the head tank which is located behind the sound curtain. What I am experiencing is that with both tanks chockers @ take-off, the sight gauge appears to show that my aircraft draws fuel from the starboard wing on climb-out and for the first hour or so, and then the port side wing sight glass starts to draw down. For the last few flights I have super concentrated on keeping the ball right in the guts for all stages of the initial couple of hours and the result is the same. Do you experience anything similar or if not, what do you see with yours? And if you get the same, why do you reckon that happens and does anybody have a proven solution to even up the draw-down thru all stages of the flight?
