How do I Add a Fuel Trigger?

Adding a fuel trigger is different for FS9 and FSX/P3D.  In FSX/P3D it is necessary to have a fuel parking spot.  This is not required in FS9

Add a fuel trigger in FS9

Add a fuel trigger in FS9
  1. Right click where you want the fuel trigger
  2. Select Add and then

The fuel trigger properties dialog will open so that you may select which types of fuel you want available at the spot (you can always edit these later)

Save the properties and the fuel trigger will be shown.  You can drag and/or rotate it to its final position
