New mutli-families of flux-continuous finite-volume methods are presented for the full-tensor pressure equation with general discontinuous coefficients for any cell type in three dimensions. Full pressure continuity that is built into the new methods leads to a quasi-positive formulation that minimises spurious oscillations in discrete pressure solutions for strongly anisotropic full-tensor fields. The multi-family formulation permits maximum flexibility in quadrature yielding improved solution resolution.
