While in cruise flight, a Cessna 210G experienced a total loss of engine power, and the pilot performed a forced landing to a field. During the landing, the airplane's right wing and right main landing gear struck a fence, the airplane skidded laterally across the field, and the left main landing gear and nose gear collapsed. The pilot stated that the engine lost power without warning, and the fuel quantity indicators showed "better than 1/2 tank on both gauges." Examination of the airplane revealed that the fuel selector was set to the left wing fuel tank position, and the left wing fuel tank contained no fuel. In addition, the right wing fuel tank was approximately 2/3 full. No deficiencies or anomalies were noted with the fuel system, the fuel quantity indicators, or the engine.
