For what it's worth I've noticed that the fuel indicator on the Ta-152/C reads full when I choose 50%.

The focke-wulf Anton series also have this problem whith 75% fuel.

Is the fuel gauge a percentage of the total or is it measured in liters? If the fuel tank is larger than the gauge (which it might be in the Ta-152C which I think has multiple tanks but just the one gauge) then it won't start to show until the fuel state is low enough to register. The Russian fighters are like that (at least the ones with a gauge).

It is measured in liters. My concern is that I might be carring more fuel than I want to. i guess I'll try 25%?

There's your answer right there then http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

And yeah you could try 25%. I believe the Ta-152C has more fuel capacity than any of the other FW190 series aircraft including the Ta-152H so you can probably get away with 25% like a Mustang or a Tempest or something like that.

Thought it was because of the plane simply carrying more gas than the gauge shows. Same goes for Bf110 and DO335.

Bingo!

Zero fighters are interesting. They have two fuel gauges, one showing fuel content from 25% down, the other from 7% down... you basically have no clue how much fuel you have when above 25%. Anyway, zero even with 25% can fly long loooong distances.
