Can someone please explain the usage of the radiator and fuel mixture in IL2? When should I adjust them? I mainly fly either the IL2 Strumovik or FiatG.50.

thx

Generally, you should leave the radiator in a open setting when cruising around, to keep the engine cool. When combat comes, close the radiator for smallest possible drag.

Fuel mixture is mostly dependent on altitude - at about 2000-3000m or so, you should switch from 100% mix to 80% mix, and vice versa. You can also use 120% mix as a small performance boost on the deck.
