Fuel consumption doesn’t change depending on how much horsepower a prop engine has... which is annoying.

I had a feeling that changing the power of a prop engines doesn’t change the fuel it consumes, so I made an engine have 0 horse power, and it’s fuel went down just as fast as a 2000 horse power engine’s horsepower went down. Wow. Just wow...

This is annoying and needs to be added to the game.

    I think he’s just going more in-depth to what RailfanEthan Ethan said. @BroAeronautics

    @Seavixen you can't change the fuel mixture in SimplePlanes

    @RailfanEthan the horsepower can be increased by making the fuel/air mixture richer (more fuel), or increasing overall cylinder size, and more. I learned this from this game: https://www.automationgame.com

    I can't promise it will get fixed in 1.8, but I will add it to the list.

    If you are making something and you want fuel consumption to be greater you can always use zero power jets... @jamesPLANESii

    Does lowering the power or max rpm change fuel consumption? @jamesPLANESii

    You can’t adjust input on props. @Winstonlharambe

    I usually adjust the input, if that even helps

    well i mean fuel consumption isn't based on horsepower, it's a bunch of fun technical engine stuff.
    .
    still tho, fix it, this is too buggy

    Same problem with car engines too. And the in-game engine consumes fuel about twice as fast as a truck in real life
