Mabey someone can awnser this. Why is it that most of the MD-80 fueling
panels cannot be operated in the auto fill mode. When you program them for
the specific fuel amounts they allways under fill the tanks. Also why is
it on some of the MD-80s you have to be real carefull about when you
shutoff the valves becuase the amount will float 200-250 pounds. Yet on
some it does not float at all.
