my eyes glazed over half-way through, does someone have a translation in english?

You asked for it :P


I have 8 oil tanks which are connected together by waterproof stone pipes.

One of them has a wooden pipe connected to a combustion engine, which pumps the oil to my three other combustion engines that power my quarry.

Unfortunately, when the tank which the combustion engines are connected to is empty, it is not refilled from the other seven tanks

The tanks are connected at the top via wooden pipes, and a teleport pipe transports the oil into the tanks themselves, the bottoms are connected via stone waterproof pipes in order to extract the oil

Can anyone shed some light on my predicament? :S

hmm if you have it just like that, then your wooden pipes are at the bottom anyhow. make sure they are all powered by an engine of some kind, even redstone works.

edit: just watched some more of the video. his setup is flawed. tanks will not auto balance by putting normal pipes between them. if you look, the pipes aren't even connecting to the tanks.
