NO. There's an auto function for that.

ok thats good to know! So with that being said...."The A32X series automatically turns off the center tanks during take off" would be correct?

Guy might be a Boeing only type person!

Center pumps off/ or Center transfer valves close (321) when Slats extended.

They do run for 2 minutes post engine start regardless of slat position, then shutoff.

Automatic function
