What is the best way to work out how much fuel you need for a race. The game does not seem to tell you how far you can go per litre.

Guess how much you need then run a few practice laps with that level and see how much you use, then get the calculator out.

((Initial fuel level - current fuel level) / number of laps driven since leaving pits) + a bit of margin.

Cars with a digital display on the dash, or wheel, will show you fuel used shown as last lap and an average lap.


You need to bind a key, or button to cycle through the MOTEC display

there are also a few mobile apps out there, as well as some desktop apps that will show you L/Lap.

pCARS dash for iOS and Android, vrHive and pCARS Profiler for desktop to name a few.

Doesn't the 'L' in fuel settings mean 'laps' and not 'liters'?

Nope, it's Litres... Not Laps...

Oh we could make it exciting when it's measured in kg too :D
