fuel consumption testing detailed method. controlled variables: a singe fuel item placed into tank. constant variables: change in elevation, coasting, residual fuel. measuring method: it is confirmed that belts are 2M per resource consumed this is regardless of "belt to long" when brought to an existing post. experiment procedure: a tractor is built with the tool box on the starting line this sets the distance consistently and grantees no residual fuel for a clean start a single fuel item is placed in the tank and the tractor is entered and moved forward to 1kmp and immediately exited bringing the tractor to a halt this is repeated till the tractor fails to start a convenor post is built in line with the tool box and the cost of belt length is taken then multiplied by 2 this is how many meters the fuel lasted

Belt cost can be inaccurate, especially at lower distances. Better to use foundations (8 meters wide), and then conveyor poles to measure in 1 meter increments (they snap 8 per foundation).

updated thanks for the tip, hope no one really cares about the accuracy of the power shard I did the test for 800M gave up, drove from the north east oil fields to the west pure oil islands then started to consume fuel it is really a ridicules amount FacadeKitsune (talk) 05:04, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
