    Fuel computer operation

    Is it possible to adjust the GAL REM value without changing the GAL USED value or do they always add together to equal the total fuel tank size?

    I would like the GAL USED to be 0.0 at the beginning of each flight. Is this possible to do when departing with less than full tanks?

    They have to be tied to tank size or it will not work when you switch from REM to USED and back.

    My gal used is not resetting when I reset main tanks after filling. Any idea why not. Can I reset everything to zero.

    Could be that you have tanks 3 and 4 capacity set greater than zero. If you only have 2 tanks you should set tanks 3 & 4 capacity to zero. Or the capacity of your main tanks are not correct?

    I think you are correct. Was running a third tank and took it off line.

    The fuel computer is setup to also use the size from tanks 3 and 4 so it will work with tip tanks that do not have a sending unit.
