  • A noob question


    In the Duchess when I do the Pre-Flight Check List as shown in the Duchess manual

    When I switch on the battery and check the fuel gauges for fuel they read empty is this normal


    I'm assuming being a noob that the check is to ensure sufficient quantity exists cause running out of fuel in the sky is bad.


    However the Fuel gauges only seem to work when the engine is operating is this normal

    As soon as I switch off the engines the fuel quantity gauges read zero


    Before engine start, if I switch on the Aux Fuel pumps I get fuel pressure with empty tanks according to fuel quantity gauge until engine start.


    I thought it would be like a car, fuel sensor works without engine running as long as electricity is supplied.


    Or am I making a noob mistake.


    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
