PS4, 1.04 Patch, G29

Have had same issue in career race. 
Started race with normal fuel load and after 6 laps having only run on standard fuel mix n med ers usage was already 2 laps down on fuel.

Exit to menu. Re entered race, set max fuel load +11 laps. Ran race mostly on lean fuel mix with about 10 laps ran on standard fuel mix as it initially looked like no issue only to run out of fuel half way thru last lap of 50% race :(. Tried fuel saving heavily via driving as well as fuel mix last 10 laps.

As posted in other bug report also had issues during practice were fuel usage was 0.

I am on PS4 and am having the same problem, I'm doing 100% distance and start with 2+ laps of fuel, by the end end of lap 2 on lean mix I was negative and by lap 10 was -8 laps of fuel down, all while lift and coast and short shifting, I was running 1/2 ERS aswell, a shame because you can't continue with career

You do know this isn't a bug? @bate@BatesyMate @VUni@VUnit469 @mcs2006

Remember when Honda were having ERS issues the car consumed too much fuel and they had to retire it (if it didn't break first)? The fuel you need is based on the ERS being active.

If the ERS is set to 0, is also going to use more fuel, there's no electrical power to aid the engine anymore.

Just tried on another ps4, all the same settings on the first lap I saved half a lap of fuel, is definitely a bug

It’s a bug. I agree with if your running no ERS you will consume more fuel. But im running 70% of a race on lean mix and medium ers there is no way with all fresh componets and 11 extra laps of fuel i should run out before the end of a GP. While short shifting and coasting.

Tested on all possible ways. All ERS Modes, All Fuel Modes even drive slow like a -10AI drains it so fast. And im driving Sauber (Because Swiss) in Career. 

15 Rounds +7 Fuel = No chance. It drains all.

I reinstalled the game without the patch and DLC and fuel is better but seems like its to far the other way with the fuel burn but atleast i got to finish the race.

Couldnt use previous save because it was patched so had to do all the practice programs ect. It’s all tainted the experience a bit but still enjoying the game ? nothing alittle patch wont fix.

When I play career on a 50% race I am able to start a race with only 0.60 fuel over and stay on rich mix the whole race while using ERS on medium. mostly how is that possible? Does ers make such a impact on fuel usage to maintain rich mix with only medium ERS?

Update again...
Bug STAYS now after the bugged Race also in next Week. Impossible to doing even Training, Quali or Race. Career destoyed... Some Player has nearly no Drain and some such a big drain that finish a Race is not or nearly not possible. 

Again a simple 15 Rounds Race with +7 Fuel and i must Drive ALL on low mix to even finish with nearly no Fuel. Such a Gamebreaker.

Sad Part is i bet that Bug get not fixed fast or even get ignored because many of Users has Crashes, Freezes or FPS Drops and the Fuel Bug get no attention.

This kind of sounds like you're just not used to saving fuel. Are you spinning your tires and so on?

15 Rounds on Low Mix, ALL Assists ON (Except Brake Assistant), No Wheel Spin, +7 Fuel and its ONLY in Carrer Mode. Quick Grand Pix or Multiplayer No Problems with same Settings.

First Week in Career was all OK but after Week 2 the Problem occur.

Same problem here on PC with Renault. 100% race, Australia, 15 laps to go and fuel runs out. Even driving on lean the fuel still drains so quickly.

Edit: I did notice an issue with the fuel consumption practice programme, in that it registered the average fuel consumption as 0 (something like that, wish I'd taken a screenshot now). No idea if they're connected though.

It's definitely a bug. Changing ERS settings change nothing to the fuel consumption...

Help !

I've ended up deleting my driver and creating a new career/profile, I've just finished Australia on 100% and the fuel was normal

I almost get the impression that if you restart race or practice season it causes this to occur.

Anyone notice something similar??

Anyone else getting unrealistic fuel usage, while in a 100% race distance? Just did my first full GP distance in Career and I had to fuel save an incredible amount even in “LEAN” 
the old F1 games even last year never used to be this way. I’m assuming it’s a bug. It’s not normal to fuel save that much. Like 90% of the race. Even over fuelled! 
Sort it Codies! 
LET ME KNOW IF ANYONE IS HAVING THE ISSUE 
Thank you

I remember it happening in 2017 but not tried 100% yet in 2018 version. Maybe just carried it on but I can't compare to a realistic volume anyway.

I'm also having this problem and I had it last year as well and the way I solved this problem was through the engine R&D

I don't understand. I was doing 50% races and was surprised how much fuel I had on board. I guess 5 laps of extra fuel. It reminded me to lower the fuel next race. Maybe you should take more fuel with you and R&D for fuel consumption?

If you set ERS to 0, it sucks the tank dry hard, when you run ers at 2 or 3 fuel consumption is almost nothing even when in rich mode. The ers support can help you save so much fuel. Only turn it to 0 when you have enough fuel, but when you use 1 or 2 you should be able to race normal and underfuel your car even 

i really love how ers management can influence the whole race and you need to be even sharper now than with fuel modes only
