737 Fuel transfer

Pro Member Trainee

On the 737 and similar aircraft, there are 3 fuel tanks that can be adjusted for capacity (L,R & Ctr) ---On the 737 instrument panel there are only 2 tanks showing--L & R.
On several of my fights, I am coming close to emptying the L & R tanks while the center tank has more than enough fuel to go on.---How do I access the center tank----Crossfeed??? FS Setting or Assignment??

In the Flight Simulator 737, fuel transfer from wing tanks to center tank is automatic. When wing tanks are depleted, engines will continue to operate, drawing fuel from the center tank. Once the wing tanks are empty, you don't have a fuel quantity indication for the center tank. I believe that it was an oversight by Microsoft. 🙂
