    IMSA at Sebring using a Ford 2017 GT is really close on fuel. CC said I was running on fumes so I backed off. This was my second race with CC and both were very close on fuel. I do have CC auto update on.

    Really good program.

    I run the Porsche in IMSA with the "fuel to end" enabled. I find at Sebring this week I had fuel two extra laps and at end of race I had 1.6 laps estimated. Getting close. Better to be a bit over than short that is for sure. LOL ....

    I'm going to experiment with 1 lap extra ... then it may be right on.

    My Ford reported a half lap left on fuel at the checker. As you know, if timing of the leader is just at the race timers end then you can end up with nearly two laps extra.

    Is there a place in CC to add a lap on fuel calac?

    Sorry for the late reply.... With CC v4.9.5.7, even if I pitted mid-race (lap 10 or 11 of 22), I would be sputtering across the finish line even with the "Additional fuel to add to finish the race" set to 1.

    I experimented with increasing "Additional fuel to add to finish the race" to as high as 3 laps, but it did not make any difference. I'd still be short on fuel. The only time my fuel worked out perferctly was when I'd run the tank down to empty, then pit on the last possible lap.

    Could setting fuel reports to gallons be causing a bug?

    I've since updated to CC v4.9.5.8, but have yet to run any more races requiring fuel stops. Will test again on week 12.

    Ran an IMSA race today after the update. I did not quite understand the change notice description but the fuel to the end worked perfectly.

    Thank you for the fix.
