Will running your engine "rich" cool the engine in IL2:FB with the excess fuel also taking some heat with it?

I haven't been able to determine if this effect is modelled or not.. anyone know for sure?

possibly
running overrich would cos engine revs die
(when u leave brown trails)

The excess fuel should carry away some of the engine heat.

But, I don't know if this is modelled or not.

Anyone?

It's bad for the environment, don't do it.

Whats the fastest way to cool your engine when it looks like temp needle is about to break off?

Dunk it in the nearest ocean/river.

Nothing will cool you as fast as backing off the throttle and lowering RPM.

On radial engines, airspeed should assist in cooling very much.

Beyond that, your standard cowl/radiator flaps..


I'd like to know if excess fuel (rich) will also lower your engine temperatures as it should.

...?
