Fuel Quantities Limited to Left Right

Hello Team Asobo,

Did you know, you have no Center1 tank quantity for setting fuel amount readings in the Garmins? For instance, you have FUEL RIGHT QUANTITY and FUEL LEFT QUANTITY, but not
FUEL CENTER1 QUANTITY, etc.
RonH did find a way to use this;
FUEL SELECTED QUANTITY:6
This (above) shows an active fuel selector 'tank' which :6 is Center1.

At least a Center1 might come in handy for people using the Garmins, setting them in the panel.xml files, to show a proper readout, whether selected (active) or not.

Just thought I would let you know. I know you all are under a great work load.

God bless,

Bill

To add to the confusion what the heck is this? no matter what index all the same?

Hello

@lyonhaart001 I think the simvar you're looking for is FUEL TANK CENTER QUANTITY

@DA40CGDFQ Our apologies, the doc is wrong about the index.
The index is not used to identify the tank directly but the selector.
When using the legacy fuel system, this simvar will return the quantity of fuel in the tank pointed by the selector you chose with the index.
If passing an index higher than the number of selector or using the new fuel system, it will return the total fuel quantity.

@Nocturne We want to fix that in the doc.

Regards,
Sylvain
