POH language on fuel quantity indication is vague on whether or not the gauges are showing 97 gallons/side when full (194 gallon system) or 83 gallons/side (166 gallon system). I don't believe there are any floats in the aux tank (tip). I know the scale is nonlinear, but it is not clear to me what quantity is being referenced on the gauge. Any one have insight?

My understanding is that the gauges only indicate the 83/166 quantity and will not start to move toward empty until the approx. 15/30 gallons in the wingtips has been consumed.

Important that you visually verify that the tips are indeed full of fuel if you are planning a flight that will require the whole 194 gallons for enroute+alternate requirements. ( :whistle: Please double check yourself and make sure you are opening the wingtip fuel cap and not the outboard leading edge fuel cap. You cannot get the cap back on fast enough to prevent a fairly decent sized fuel spill, or so I have been told/cautioned :beechslap: )

That is the way I understand it anyway.

The guages read full when there are 75 gallons or more in the tanks. See the "Fuel Quantity Indication" section in Chapter 7 in the POH.
