To calculate my race fuel I use my practice lap times to the overall race length and set the amount of fuel laps, generally I can get it within 2 laps. This weekend I missed it by so much in my practice race distance I thought I made a mistake. But after replicating it in the race I knew something was off. 36% off!
Recently I was made aware of the dash display pages for fuel, I am not seeing the fuel consumption by lap as I would have expected. Am I missing something as all I see is the same info,,, Number of gallons and expected laps remaining.
Any suggestions would be appreciated

edit: I did map to flip display pages (sorry)

Some cars unfortunately can't display the fuel consumption rate because their Motec doesn't support it, f.e. the GT3 Corvette.

Is it a particular Motec as I tried the FR3 and it had same results as the ADAC '18 Corvette. Can you provide a car you know does have it, it may put this to bed sooner.:unsure:

The old Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 for example definitely has a l/lap estimation on the third dashboard page.

Thanks @Andi Goodwin and @Majuh for the help. I tried the Merc and it worked as expected. I have converted to metric as this should give me better results I think.
I compared it to the SIM Dashboard and although there is a discrepancy it may be attributed to how often the in game updates the display? I ran 12 laps at Brands Hatch and in game updated after a couple of laps but then did not update again. When complete the in game was at 1.13 l/lap while the SIM Dashboard had1.05 l/lap.
