    Re-Fueling Issue / Pit Stop Strategy Selection Issue.

    Hi,

    I've had a look and I can't find this issue having been reported so apologies if it's already been reported.

    When you drive into the pits and select a pit strategy on the way in (IE you've drove in and changed from PIT Strat 1 to Pit Strat 2) it doesn't appear to change the strategy. This was tested fairly extensively last night as we had a 70 lap race around willow springs in the stock cars. 3 Pit stops and people had varying fuel levels for each pit stop - however each time it was putting in the fuel amount it should have done on the previous pit stop.

    So I pitted for pit 1 and it put in the amount expected as I didn't need to change my strategy, Pit 2 it put in the same amount again when I expected more fuel. Pit 3 it put it the amount of fuel it should have for Pit 2.

    I hope this is clear and helps the devs in someway of finding the source of the pitting issues.

    The whole pit stop strategy issue is known. Reported because of the tire bug.

    Ok I was unsure if this side of it was known couldn't find the issue anywhere as being known.

    However, I don't recall "refueling" as being mentioned. We need to make it known that while they are in there fixing the tire temp issues there are other flaws as well. Again, I am left scratching my head as to how the tire temp issue ever got past QC. It's as if no one tested the tweaks they made for the patch. It seems that everyone has been affected and it's not an isolated instance that happens rarely.

    I actually ran into a refueling issue with the career clio cup round 4 oulton park race 2 w/ manadatory pit stop; it would not refuel at all during the pit stop even though my pit strategy called for it. ran out of fuel with one lap to go

    after two attempts, I simply changed my starting configuration to include enough fuel for the entire race.

    Are you sure that refueling was "required". If I recall correctly, I think the mandatory pit stop in the series is for tires only. I am not sure that refueling is allowed for this series.

    refuelling isn't an option in career mode, you have to make sure you have enough fuel in your tank for the entire race.
