I just recently started flying a fuel injected cessna after flying carb heated M and P models, and have a question about the starting procedure- particularly about the “warm start”.
- when we start the engine for a “warm start”- POH tells us to skip priming with the AUX fuel pump, and have the mixture ICO until the engine starts, at which point we advance the mixture.
My question is- where does the fuel come for the initial start? Shutting down on the previous flight we shut down with cutting the mixture, so there should be no fuel left. And now we are starting with the mixture in ICO position and not priming, so where are the cylinders getting the initial fuel to fire?
Thanks for your answers.
