I was flying from KDAL to KLIT in the middle of the night.  I was in the Boeing 737-800 up at 35,000 ft.  everything was perfectly normal until both engines died like they ran out of fuel but back at the gate I checked the fuel load and I had a good amount of fuel.  What happened?  And is it easy to fix?

Hi Brendan

I'm not with Laminar Research, just a fellow simmer in the UK, but when you checked the fuel load, did you actually check it in the X-Plane 11 'Weight, Balance & Fuel' settings page, as per the photo above?

Kind regards

Yes I checked the weight, balance, & fuel.  Everything looked good

Hi brenden, i’m not with Laminar Research, just a flight simmer in the Uk.

This may not be correct however is there a possibility that they cut out due to the failures configuration page in X-Plane. It is accessible next to the weight, balance an fuel tab in the aircraft customise option. Then press on the fix all systems button at the bottom and this might fix it.

I hope that this helps.

thank you so much I'll check to see if it works but that is probably the case.  I was also thinking about the madder and another possibility is that by mistake do to the darkness I may have turned off the fuel pumps.  thanks Brenden
