Was just wondering if anyone had ever tested this to find out how long it takes for fuel to be consumed at different throttle levels.I'd be interested in knowing the values for the B-25 if anyone haas ever tested it...

For example:

How long it takes a B-25 to consume 25% fuel while running 90% throttle....

I dunno if altittued would affect this....obviously in real life it would but in game I don't know if its modelled....

Anyone answer any of this?

Thanks

Skipper

S! Skipper,

Not to be a smartaleck but an easy way to do that is go to FMB and set up a mission with the B-25. One of the Pac maps and 25% fuel run at 8x will tell you what you want quite quickly. The neat part is you can replicate it for different alts and mixture settings to see if you can stretch it.
Sorry I dont have the answer to your direct question though.

Thanks for your reply Jim!

Was thinking I might try this if nobody alreda has the answer...just thinking of doing it as our Squadron might be doing some navigation work

Cheers again
