Alan,
Sorry to say this, but a Long Ez balances with the tank full. Planes with the fuel tank forward of the CG are balanced with the tank empty, but planes with the tank behind the CG are balanced with the tank full. If he balances with the tank empty the plane will be severely tail heavy when he takes off.

Hope this helps

Ken

A rear engine/tank type aircraft should be balanced with the tank full so that as it goes dry, the nose become heavier.
