if you set the fuel in the Bf109F2/4 to 50% the gauge shows 270litres.
so, 100% should be 540 /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

shouldnt they have "only" 400litres , like the G2 (and hopefully all other 109s ).

ore it is just the gauge that shows the wrong amount ?

I wondered about this myself (no-one else seems to care LOL) as when you load 100% fuel in the F-4 it does seem to have good endurance.

I will have to test with combat power and time how long the fuel lasts. If I try say 100% at around 6000M I should get about 45 mins? Max would be about 60 mins I think?

On the other hand the FW 190 A-5,8 and 9 lack fuel. They should have the same amount like the F-8, which has more. This is because of the "Erh√¬∂hte Notleistung" which is a C3 fuel injection. This fuel is in the tank behind the pilot, and they all have it (not sure about that "EH" in A-5 though... was /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif when I noticed it had the WEP key...).

The gauge does require some re-calibration./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

This is what I see:

75% fuel load > 400L
50% fuel load > 270L
25% fuel load > 150L

Have you noticed what the fuel level is when the 'red' "bingo" light comes on?
