Method and arrangement for dispersing fuel 62 within a fuel containment system 60 of an aircraft 30 including utilizing a fuel containment system on an aircraft that is located at least partially within a wing 34 of the aircraft and defines a reservoir portion 42 and a remote portion 44. Fuel is pumped during at least aircraft flight operation from the reservoir portion to the remote portion at a pumped rate 80, while simultaneously fuel that is contained in the remote portion of the fuel containment system is permitted to drain to the reservoir portion ...
What is claimed is: 1. A method for dispersing fuel within a fuel containment system of an aircraft comprising: utilizing a fuel containment system on an aircraft, said fuel containment system being located at least partially within a wing of an aircraft and defining a reservoir portion and a remote portion; pumping fuel at least during aircraft flight from said reservoir portion to said remote portion at a pumped rate; permitting simultaneous drainage of fuel contained in said remote portion of said fuel containment system to said reservoir portion at ...
