Manual fuel gauge switch please?

Recommended Posts

Currently the system ingame for the fuel gauge is kinda frustrating, only switching tanks every 10 seconds. I would much prefer an option of manually switching your viewed tank. Often I have say 130L in tank 1, and whenever I check my indicator it shows some empty tank and I have to wait, staring at an empty tank, then the next empty one, then the next, than finally see my fuel count.

 

Ideally you would have a key that manually cycles the gauge to the next tank so you can check fuel in dogfights and at a glance. At Least I would really appreciate it as I regularly fly with low fuel.

Yes this has been an issue for a long time.   The Spitfire only shows the fuel level when you press a button so instead of 1C giving us a button they decided to press it automatically for a second every now and then so you have to stare at the gauge.    Is it really that hard to assign a key for 'Switch to next fuel indicator' and have that also work as 'Turn on Fuel indicator'?

In the case of the Spitfire at least, if they cannot give us a button, then it would be great if they reduced the time before the gauge registers. It can be dangerous to fly straight and level for the current time it takes for the gauge to register.

yes i've had that issue with the spit as well, I often fly escort duty and flying straight and level for that long often means you lose your bomber and then have to go find them again.
