Similarly forward deceleration and pitch down attitudes will force fuel forward and for swept wings inboard. To accommodate this situation a vent must be positioned outboard and aft in the fuel tank. 14 Simple three tank vent system schematic. In the example shown, each tank is vented such that there is a breathing path to the outside air for all long-term flight attitudes that occur during normal flight operations. In order to prevent or minimize the opportunity for the vent lines to become filled with fuel, float actuated vent valves are often installed that close the vent lines when fuel is present.

During a climb, fuel is held in the inboard compartment under the action of the baffle check valves thus maintaining coverage of the engine boost pumps. One disadvantage of the four-compartment solution worthy of note is that each compartment must now be gauged as a separate tank each with its own fuel surface. This will require more gauging probes (tank units) than for the single-compartment design with a single fuel surface. We can calculate the change in aircraft longitudinal CG as the aircraft climbs and descends for different tank compartment configurations and different fuel tank quantities as part of the fuel storage design trade study.
