EVA construction magically resets fuel tanks to full (cheaty bug exploit)
If you have a small empty fuel tank (small enough to be detached/reattached in EVA construction mode), every time you detach it and reattach it, it resets to the factory default of being full capacity. This magically creates fuel out of nothing. It's a fun cheaty bug exploit.
(But seriously, if it resets to defaults on re-attaching, that's a big problem for more than just making magic fuel from nothing.)
I'll attach a video clip showing it.

Confirming with the simple craft attached.
+ Pump fuel to or from the small tank
+ EVA an engineer
+ Use EVA-construction to pick up the small tank and put it down somewhere
+ The small tank fuel goes back to what it was before the pumping
The fuel level resets to whatever it was when physics was last loaded, so you can F5/F9 Quicksave/Restore between any pumping or burning and EVA construction to avoid the bug
