Just curious if you all run with tank full of fuel for every race or what your method is. Do you adjust for fuel consumption?
AND How much fuel do you burn in a night, say 2 qualifying laps, 8-10 Heat Laps, and 20-25 Feature laps.

I have to keep mine full, our weight limit is 3300, by the end of the feature i usually weigh in at 3375-3420, so it works out alright.

You will probally burn 7 to 8 gallons and it depends on what your weight rule is as the race night goes on you will lose about 1 percent of weight some were depends on location of the cell

Usually burn ~7 gallons between 8 lap heat and 12-15 lap feature. We fill up before the feature so there is rear weight.
