In PC1 it showed how many laps you could get with X amount of fuel. That information seems to be non existent. How do I know how much fuel I need for a race?

Practicing and writing down on a piece of Paper...

Im sure it will not long take, and a Member will make a List. :)

There is a simple way to figure it out.

In practice put 1liter of fuel in the car and mark how many laps you can do with one liter. Divide that number by total laps in the race and you have a rough estimate pf how much fuel you need.

If the race is a timed race ill put say 10 liters in during practice and run at race pace for 1min and mark how much fuel i use in one min. Times that number by total mins in race and there ya go.

Very simple, I am sure real race drivers have to do that themselves as well....or not? :confused:

I think their team/engineer.... Certainly not the driver.
