1966 182J Fuel question

1966 182J Fuel question

Hello everyone,

I am flying a 1966 C-182J and I have been told that when the fuel selector is in both that the fuel will feed from the right tank until depletion then feed from the left tank if kept in the both selection. I flew the airplane the other day and sure enough it looked like the fuel primarily came from the right tank. Its been 20 years since I have been current in Cessnas and flew almost every model back in the day. Mostly late 70's to mid 80's models. I don't recall this being how the engine was fed the fuel.

Is this correct in how the system is set up?

Any other information on this would be helpful also.

Thank you,

John

Re: 1966 182J Fuel question

I am surprised how long this question has been up and no reply was given. Well, without being an expert but having experience due to owning a 1968 182, I can tell you that it is pretty much the way it is. However, I do not think it is because of the valve position as much as the way the tanks are vented. On my airplane fuel travels from right to left and if its only me on board and light on fuel, most of it is goes to the left and the airplane banks that way inevitably. what I do to remedy it is select the fuel valve to the right when the airplane is in the hangar and try to keep it from getting to low. either way, it seems that this is quite common on early cessna high wings...
