I have noticed on my last 4 flights that pireps (cvacars) is reporting mid air refuel just after takeoff.
I paid close attention on my last fuel and noted that, although, a mid air refuel was reported there was no actual change in amount of fuel on board.
I have been using FS2020 and PMDGs new 737-700.
I wonder if there is a miscommunication with fsuipc version 7 and CVACARS?

Any thoughts?

Ok. I get a mid air refuel when I press ctrl+6. That command brings up the overhead panel in PMDGs 737-700.
I paid close attention to my fuel and it doesn't actually change anything.
Since the only place I see it is in CVACARS I am assuming it must be related to FSUIPC version 7 or something in CVACARS.

No problem. Hope it helps someone.

The other thing I noticed it only happens the first time I key ctrl+6, after that I can bring up the overhead panel numerous times and it doesn't trigger a midair refuel.
