Piper Comanche PA24 Tank Features

 

SINGLE ENGINE

The Single engine system is of the direct feed type and does not involve any transfer of fuel (See drawing 4017).  There are two selector valves mounted side by side, each with three positions.  By means of positioning the handles, one may draw fuel from both main tanks or both wing tip tanks simultaneously, providing automatically for a cross-feed system.  One may also position the valves to draw fuel from either tip tank or either main tank.  The wing aux equipped models also have the same selector capabilities making for the ultimate in versatility.  There are no electric solenoid valves or check valves to complicate the installation or restrict the flow of fuel.
