Maybe later models have automatic fuel taps, but I would like a little device (say three idiot lights, or a tell-tale) that would show the state of my fuel tap (petcock to our American friends)- i.e. on, reserve or off. The moreI think about it, a digital tell-tale should be quite easy to arrange.

Maybe I am silly or something. But I didn't know that the injected models had anything other than on and off.

Marty is right, the later Wings don't have a tap. They are more like cars and they have a dash warning light for when the fuel runs low.
