Has anyone else noticed that the fuel gauge on the P40 does not work? I regularly select 25% fuel and a drop tank. I drop the tank when I enter combat, but the fuel gauge does not start to show that I am using of the internal fuel.

Suddenly the low fuel warning light to the top left comes on, and I have to hurry home if it is close enough, or just ditch in friendly territory.

Has anyone sent this in as an official bug report?

That fuel guage isn't a fuel guage per se, but a fuel flow/pressure indicator (or so I believe). Real P-40 had the fuel guage behind the right rudder pedal, and it doesn't work.
