    As part of Mythiq.net Assetto Corsa Competizione servers and our upcoming project, we introducing Race Fuel Calculator for Assetto Corsa Competizione to help every player to easily calculate how much fuel is needed for whole race.

    Everyone can now easily calculate how much fuel is needed for race of any length and on any track. Calculation also including safety reserve to make sure, that you’ll have enough fuel in any unexpected event on track, such as double warm-up laps, car damage or anything else. Calculator is also mobile friendly, so you can have it opened in your smartphone for better and more comfortable usage.


    How it works?
    Everything you need is to insert race length in minutes, then choose track and insert your fuel consumption per one lap – this stat is available in car setup menu under Fuel & Strategy tab and it is most accurate after you complete few laps on track. E. g. after qualification.
    Our Race Fuel Calculator then calculate everything for you and you no longer have to worry about that you run of fuel in last lap.

    Mythiq.net Race Fuel Calculator is available here:

    Yeah it was a real pain trying to figure it all while peering under my VR headset, I was converting the minutes into seconds and then trying to work out how many laps I could do in that time. I've bookmarked this on the phone now, should make things much easier.

    Don't want to sound like a d!ck, but it doesn't calculate fuel correctly. Even with the 'safety reserve' it's way off.

    A 90 minute race at Monza for example:
    60x90=5400 seconds

    Monza is ~1:48 laptimes
    5400/108=50 laps

    3.1L per lap in the Aston for example
    50x3.1=155L

    Your fuel calculator tells me I need 198L. The tool says 'Including safety reserve approx. of 16L'.
    198-16=182L, while in reality I only need 155L.

    Edit: Wow, this tool is even buggier than I initially thought xD
    90 minute race at zolder with 3.1L per lap gives me a result of 242L

    Thank you for providing a tool to the community. A little feedback if I may..

    - The website is taking 60+ seconds to fully load.
    - A small spelling mistake.

    I use either my calculator or racingstrats.com when I feel lazy or for a confirmation I didn't misscalculated something.
    Not being able to use an average laptime for the calculation seems very weird. Nice idea but lot of room for improvements and even then there are several other calculators already available...

    Thank you for your feedback and suggestions.

    @Oblit0r
    For longer races RFC still calculates a bit more than I want, however for shorter races (like 20-30 minutes) it is ok.

    I will fix this for longer races soon, really appreciate your feedback. :)

    @Firmi
    "Not being able to use an average laptime for the calculation seems very weird. "

    - This is because average lap times per every track are set in calculator. This is why you need to choose track in calculator. It's more user friendly.

    It's the same for shorter races tho.

    30 Minute race at Monza, by my own calculation I need 52L (I would add fuel for 1 extra lap which gives me 55-56L). Your tool shows me I need 66L.
    20 Minute race at Monza, I need 35L + 1 lap = 38-39L. Your tool shows me 44.

    Your tool calculates fuel for 14.2 laps in a 20 minute race, when with 1:46 laptimes (you probably will never see these times during a race) you would only need fuel for 11.3 laps.

    Would be an idea to let users override the preset laptimes you've put in the tool, because in different griplevels and conditions (static medium rain for example), laptimes will differ a lot from the times you've put in the tool, rendering the outcome of the calculation pretty useless.

  11. @Elrann Many thanks for your work but this should be a proper fuel calculator should be a part of the game itselfs.
    There is absolute no reason for the Kunos guys to still withhold this feature :cool:

    How many race drivers are sitting in the car with a laptop to calculate the necessary fuel for the race and tell the result to their race engineers?

    Maybe there is a bias like counting a full formation lap instead of a short one.

    It does, but even then it calculates about 2 laps too much fuel for a 20 minute race.

    How can you know what the average laptime for me will be? Maybe I'm so slow, I'll get lapped, or I'm one of the Aliens who does one or two laps more than all the others.
    You say it's more userfriendly when in reality it's just unnecessary and kind of useless when instead you could easily ask the user to put in an average laptime, or maybe even give us both options.

    Race time in minutes * 60 / laptime in seconds = total laps.
    Totals laps + 1 multiply by fuel used per lap = total fuel.

    It's a very simple calc to do on your phone, small calculator or an excel sheet.

    Yes, this is one of reason why RFC calculating a bit more fuel. It is not unusual that on some MP servers are two formation laps before race starts due to some weird bug, so I choose more safer way to calculate fuel. At the end of the day, having 10 litres more per 20/30 min race does not do a big difference in lap times. Still better to lose 0.100 per lap than 45 secs by refueling. For longer races it is issue indeed, however I'll do my best to modify calculator to calculate less reserve for longer races.
    Also RFC counting with possible fuel consumption rate change during race.


    I calculated it by taking track record and average lap times from Q at MP servers by all players and calculated median. Having both options to choose is good idea, thank you.

    Race Fuel Calculator was balanced a bit for more precise and accurate fuel calculation. For longer is still a bit more fuel reserve, however at least for shorter ones its now just approx one lap.

    RFC was updated and added tracks from new Intercontinental GT DLC.

    We finished moving our website and services to new powerful servers, so everyone can fully use Race Fuel Calculator again.

    My apologies for unavailability of RFC in past two days.
