I have been trying to understand the fuel usage with a C7042 with Version 5.19 but I have noticed that the power monitor output does not alter as the fuel load goes down. It appears to stay at the level as if the car is full of fuel, is this correct or have I got a setting incorrect.

Thanks

Tim

I made a test with the latest version 5.19 and i don't have any problem but maybe you set the impact of the fuel on the max power to 0 % ???

PostSubject: Thes are my fuel usage settings   2/5/2012, 22:55


These are the settings I was using with the imact on fuel at 50% with the fuel at 50% fuel it did not make any difference to the power output at full throttle. I have tried to attach a screen dump.

Thanks

No problem for me: for your information Pc Lap Counter update the performance of the car only when the a car cross the s/f line , according to your picture i saw that drivers didn't made any laps and therefore Pc Lap Counter not send the command to adjust the performance of the car to the powerbase , so the solution is just let the car cross the s/f line and you will see that the performance will be updated.

Thanks Guy
That has solved my problem, I will now only test with a fully working track!!
Does it matter what level of firmware I have on my C7042 as I have not updated mine yet?

Thanks

yes the firmware is important, not for fuel usage but to avoid missing laps (firmware fix a bug in the C7042 powerbase).
