B737 Fuel Tanks.

Mon Jul 02, 2001 1:44 pm

Is there any particular reason that part of the B737NGs Wing tank area is used as the centre tank compared to the -200s.Thereby increasing ctr tank capacity.centre tank fuel will be utilized first so whats the point.
Why don't the Wing tank start from the wing root.thereby reducing the centre tank capacity.
I may not win often, but I damn well never lose!!! ;)

They made the center tank larger to increase range. The wing tanks are larger also, they just start further outboard. Keep in mind that the NG has a larger wing than the older models..JT
