I just noticed that fuel indicators in Ju 87 and Fw 190 F:

1) looks strange (shows 1 - 2 digits instead of 1 - 4 system like in Bf 109)
2) doesnâ´t indicate any fuel consumption. Indicator all the time stays on right side (100% fuel)

Did I something wrong, misunderstood I something or have you, guys, similar problem?

I tested 87's and there is nothing wrong with the gauge. You might want to have a closer look at the gauge as it reads 1 & 2 on the actual readout and in the center of gauge "x100 liter", the gauge shows the last 250 litres go down. Before that it of course indicates maximum.

Fuel gauge on the 190F8 does work. It just has a lot more fuel capacity than the FW-190As. Set your fuel to 50% and check the gauge again, also this gauge drops when you lose fuel. So this one works fine. Dunno about the Stuka one.

Ok seems like this is solved /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif . Something alike goes for the FW-190F8 (dunno the amount of liters that gauge shows though).

...And on a sidenote:
The bomb selector panels in the 87 and 190 dont work.

Don't know about the F8 but the Stuka fuel guage does work. I've been hit in the tanks before and while losing fuel you can see the needle steadily move to "Empty".
