I am also a member of the 'not an engineer' club {hmmm - NAE - I like it!}.
However, I have done a couple of weight and balance charts for big Boeings. The
main (wing) tanks are always required to be full prior to loading the center
tank(s) because of center of gravity problems. As the fuel burns, the CG shifts
in flight, and it is possible for the aircraft to be outside of CG limits for
safe landing in case of a diversion.
