Out of curiosity, how is pressure controlled inside fuel tanks in an aircraft ? Are fuel tanks always equalized with ambiant air pressure, slightly pressurized, or pressurized to the same pressure as is the main passenger cabin ? What about tanks which are inside the fuselage ? (eg: centre tank in a 747). If the tanks are equalized with ambiant air, is the prevention of the fuel from escaping a big problem, or is that prevent with a simple valve ? How do the above questions change when you start to constantly feed some exhaust or some other gas to the tanks ?
