Safety Advisory Notice
The ATSB suggests that CASA, through its industry publications, inform operators and pilots of Cherokee Six aircraft that a fuel selector control visual indication might not ensure selection of the intended fuel tank. In that case, actual fuel tank selection may be incorrect or partial, and result in the possibility for inconsistent engine fuel supply. Pilots should confirm correct visual fuel tank selection by detent feel.

The issue will be addressed during the year with articles in Flight Safety Australia (FSA) regarding fuel management practices. However, the opportunity also exists for the ATSB to write something on this matter in their section of FSA.
