737-200 Number Of Fuel Tanks

Thu Sep 08, 2005 3:16 am

Can anyone plz tell me how many fuel tanks there are on a 737-200 (+location) and how much fuel they contain?

P.S.
Is there a website somewhere where I could find things out about aircraft technical issues, I mean statistics and drawings?

Two integral wing tanks holding 1,430 gal each (9,580LB) and a center tank that holds 2303 gal (15,430LB). There is a provision for an aux tank that holds 810 Gal (5,429LB) in aft baggage.

Keep in mind there are -two- types of 737-200s...

The original was a 737-200 "Basic" aircraft. The fuel tank info provided by someone earlier was for the newer (and more popular) 737-200 "Advanced" or "ADV". The "ADV" became the standard pruction aircraft after about 1973-1974, IIRC... Southwest started with "Basics" and swapped them out with "ADVs" in the first few years...

The fuel capacity on the "Basics" was less than the "ADV" and I seem to recall that the max capacity was around 23.000 lbs by use of one of those aux tanks.

Max weights for the aircraft were different as well.

There are several aircraft out there that have added the PATS system STC allowing for additional fuel tanks (auxliary) that are placed in the fwd. or aft cargo compt. and have a capacity of 500 gal. each.

Quoting NZ1 (Reply 7):

Basic had Two 64.5kN (14,500lb) JT8D-9As.
Advanced had two 68.9kN (15,500lb) JT8D-15s, or two 71.2kN (16,000lb) JT8D-17s,17As, or two 77.4kN (17,400lb) JT8D-17Rs with automatic reverse thrust.
