- Fuel consumption for production+movement, incl. refineries

c.) General tips:
Due to the wide range of possibilities its more a game for experienced players (typical rounds 30).
Specially the supply strategy is crucial for this mod with air+sea+land transport units.

The fuel mod opens a totally new strategy setup. Big unit groups can't move forever, so use your fuel wisely.
