    About 3 gallons/sec , remember the size of the tank you're filling :)
    I wanted to keep this somewhat close to reality so you can fill it to a somewhat precise level, yet this is still faster than real life pumps.

    pro tip : if you scroll down to the obc's remaining fuel page you can literally see how much fuel is left in the tank. This updates live while filling :)

    Hey there everyone,

    We would like to let you know that we released a video demonstrating the features of the recently added advanced features coded by @NOCARGO. If you are having trouble figuring out how these systems work, we highly recommend watching the video. It only takes 3 minutes and 17 seconds of your time. Click on the link here to go to the video.

    Yours sincerely,

    - the GTG Mods Team

    I downloaded the mod and it looks great but it glitched the fuel tanks (the only other t-series mods I have are the Addon and some Cummins engine packs) how do I fix this??

    Could you make it possible to just disable the fuel mechanics stuff? Or better make it disabled by default and add a binding or something to enable it? I can see a lot of people having issues with it or not liking it, not everyone is into long trucking where the fuel amount matters. And also when refuelling becomes a thing in the official game then this will definitely conflict with it.

    Sure we could make that possible.

    Yep, we could do that too :)

    Can you define 'a lot' in comparison to forum posts and downloads ?

    Ok, understandable, but maybe there are people who do want to have a trucking experience that surpasses all other
    alternatives of the day ? Maybe there are people who want to have the freedom that BeamNG offers combined with
    the assets that other truck sims contain ? (jake brake and a fully working splitter/range gearbox are being prepared for a future update and a lot of other stuff is on the way too)

    Do you believe that this will become a thing soon ?

    How can we know if this would definitely conflict with it ? A mod is a mod, it adds 'modified' structures to the core game.
    Moreover, this mod is updated on a regular base and will by no means just become disfunctional after future game
    updates.

    The fuel system is a recent developed feature for the mod. It's being tested, as well as
    all other features of the mod, constantly. It's supposed to be improved over time too, but it was released
    after sufficient testing that proves its functionality. If you rupture the fuel tanks (or maybe run out of fuel too)
    then it will be needed to press ctr+r after refilling the tanks. Other than this there should be no problems with any sorts
    of glitching or bugs as far as I'm aware of. A dedicated instruction video has been provided too, if you have any problems with refueling just reset the vehicle by pressing ctr+r before, after or before and after refueling, that's all there is to it.


    • If this feature appears too complicated to operate for some users then I will consider an enable/disable option.

    The fuel system is part of the mod, you need to add a key binding to refuel the tanks.
    There's an instruction video here , go to 02:16.

    This mod is not compatible with every other T-Series mod, however it should be compatible with AR162B's T-Series Addon Pack, if that is
    what you mean by 'Addon'. But more mods might be compatible still, just try to bind a key for refueling first, watch the instruction video,
    and see if you still have problems. Hope this helps, if not, please feel free to let us know :)

    Just look at the past 3 pages, since the mechanics were introduced over half of the posts have been about the problems with it. The problem is not that it's hard to use but that it's annoying to have to reload the vehicle every time you rupture the tanks. And I think a lot more people would prefer the jake brake and the gearbox instead of this, I think those features define driving a truck better. Other than that you are right, most of your points are good.

    Hm I don't know, I think impatience and possibly conflicting mods has to do a lot with unsolved problems for many users. It's like you say, it's not that hard to use. Besides, how long is one gonna keep ruptured tanks without reloading ? Hah yeah pressing reset is much easier then 'waiting' for ctr+r aight ? :)

    You've got a point anyway, no promise yet but we will discuss implementing an on/off option for this feature.

    Hi there,

    As we have mentioned before, we do not take requests for this project due to the large amount of content that's already planned. As a side note, a truck like the 9200i is different in style from the T-Series, and such a design would need massive redesigns to the point that it is no longer a T-Series. The traditional style the T-Series is based on has changed very little over the last 50 years. We do however have a new semi-truck planned called the Gavril R-Series that is loosely based on already existing 2017 and newer Class-8 US Highway semi-trucks. A quick view of which in its current can be seen here:


    We have not planned, nor are we going to plan interior color options for the Phase-IV interior any time soon. Maybe eventually, we will make up our minds.

    Yours sincerely,

    - the GTG Mods Team

    That R-series actually reminds me a bit of the international 9200i and the old 8300 from back in the 90s (shown). Just me though, and I know that model has a long way to go in terms of development still.
