I wonder if it would be possible to add bingo level indicator at status bar showing remaining fuel. As there seem to be general consensus that refueling should be handled manually, knowing current bingo level for aircraft would be of much help.




ComDev -> RE: Feature request - bingo level indicator (5/22/2014 4:23:50 PM)

You mean remaining fuel to bingo? The reserve fuel qty is already listed.

'Fuel qty to bingo' could be a bit tricky as it depends on your distance to base (which changes every second), altitude, etc, so not entirely sure such an indicator would really help much.

Guys?

One nice way to do it could be to display the predicted fuel reserve (bar underneath, possibly) at each plotted waypoint, or the refuel point if the waypoint cannot be reached.

Isn't the engine calculating a "required to get home" (or to available taker) fuel level at all times? There's gotta be something that triggers RTB. A vertical line on the fuel remaining bar, indexed to the "fuel needed" qty would be helpful. I'm also sure it's not as easy as it sounds.

Does it mean reserve should show fuel left to bingo? If yes, it is not working this way.


EDIT: I scanned manual for explanation that reserve fuel is supposed to show, and haven't got any clue. Maybe someone knowledgable would be kind enough to enlighten me, or at least point me in right direction? Possibly there is thread on the forum explaining this?

Well, after figuring out in another thread what reserve fuel is I can be more precise. Right at the moment, to know what part of fuel I can use for actual mission, before RTB Bingo takes me out of the loop, I need to:
measure distance from home base, (DIST)
check out ac fuel consumption per minute at cruise at max alt, (CONS)
check out cruise speed at max alt, (CRUISE)
check out reserve, (RESERVE)
check out total fuel remaining, (TOTAL)

After this, fuel before Bingo is given (or at least should be, don't know algo used by sim) by following expression:
TOTAL - (DIST/CRUISE)*60*CONS - RESERVE

Very straightforward procedure. So it will be nice to have it reported somehow by sim.
And yes, I am aware it will be changing minute by minute, as ac is burning fuel and going further from base. Another reason, it would be nice to have it reported.
