Located under the starboard wing, near the leading edge, this is where the F/O might find himself if it is raining during the turnaround.

Use the three tank valve switches to direct fuel into the desired tanks. The blue lights will illuminate when the associated tank valve switch is open and the tank is not full. They extinguish either when the tank is full or the associated switch is turned off. The gauges are repeaters of those in the flight deck, so don't press the quantity test switch while your colleague is doing the refuelling! Some gauges may be fitted with a quantity preset facility to assist the refuel process. Just visible on the right hand side of the photograph are the fuelling valves, these each have a button to override the valve switches and force the valve open - use with care, fuel spillages are expensive!

Note: The NG's do not have a cap for the refuelling point.
