Hello Lionel Deffries,

Good observation on jump fuel usage, one that I missed. As Granpafishy, Sigg Oddra, Ganidiirsi O'Flynn, and daryen indicate which CT printing of Book 2 or 5 that one has determines the rules on how jump fuel is used. I have at least 3 different print runs in my collection of CT books, so I missed the current direction of fuel usage threads.

Using collapsible/inflatable fuel tanks in the cargo hold would take up approximately the same weight and space as a full load of cargo. The maneuver and jump performance rating would also be similar to what occurs with the various cargo loads being carried.

From my reading of other threads it seems that if you have jump 6 engines then you use jump 6 fuel even if you only jump 2ps, this seems silly.
Second question.
What added weight limits would you put on a ship that had the inflatable fuel cells but used them in the cargo bay (you should be able to see where this is going).
I humbly await your learned and weighty replys.
Oh by the way you'r all wrong in section 1576479 of the original unpublished memorandum subsection 42 line 3 (penciled in the margin)it states "it's your game enjoy it how you like."
I realy do want replies i just weakened for a moment SORRY.
More sock race.
