hmm, what do you think? In my opinion it is pretty clear.

On normal the machines use quite realistic numbers. On low...well lower fuel consumption.

Yeah I guess so. But I have been a bit confused since it was the opposite in 17

I've often wondered about that. I can run a tractor for a whole day and use what about half a tank (real time, default)? Seems low to me but I don't actually know, just my guess.

Logic says, if you have a Low setting and a default setting, then the default would be higher usage

I'm pretty sure 17 was the same settings. Default and low

Why are people being mean about his question? I don't blame him in asking! I have switched to default and low and both hardly use any fuel so it's kinda deceiving.

I have yet had to refuel anything in fs19. Feels pointless to have the thundercreek fuel trailer in the game.

Fuel usage on default isen't bad. The scale of the game just makes it feel that way. Look at your hrs used on something you think should need fuel, most heavy equipment has tanks large enough to run all day or more on a full tank...

If they would switch the fuel usage with the maintenance it would be perfect. Don't know why it is so hard to figure out.
A big harvester will burn a tank of fuel in 12 to 15 hours, not 40 hours like the game is now. But I shouldn't need $1500 dollars of maintenance every 3 hours. Just head scratching.

I miss that big green beast. It would be perfect with 4 Pacesetter Super B trailers behind it. 120,000L at a time.
