HI all

I did a search and could not find the answer.

Can you tell me where I can find the Fuel Gauge in the Mig3.

Also is this gauge working - I mean if I get hit in the fuel tanks, the gauge will drop.

Thanks
Shelton.

I don't recall precisely, but it should be a gauge marked with an orange circle, and probably go up to 300.

The fuel gauges will generally show 300 liters, so if you have less than that, the needle will move. The MiG-3 can carry over 600 liters.

Make sure you are looking at an actual fuel gauge, and not a fuel pressure gauge. Those will not move.

Hi sdcruz.

In the Mig3 cockpit, top row of gauges on the front panel, with the gunsight in the middle, it's the gauge furthest to the right. Yes, it works.

Find Neural Dream's Aircraft Reference guide, which includes cockpit layout, here:

Hope this helps.

ok - thanks for all who responded - i just came back from a mission and my engine was making these bad sounds like it got fried cause it was on overheat for too long, and i saw my fuel gauge needle decreasing - whats the relationship there ?

I am in Mig4-1940 and playing IL2 Sturmovik Original without any patches.

Were you hit in the vitals by enemy fire? If fuel is leaking out due to damage the gauge will reflect this. At full rpm and throttle, fuel is burned quickly, but you have to be paying attention over several minutes to see the gauge go down.
Otherwise, I dunno...
