mistake in my calculations ( multiplied when I should have divided)
ArkAngel's (welcome back) suggestion of 2 BVU's per liter seems to be at the
right order of magnitude maybe still allittle high but at least in the
ballpark. I think 1 BVU per liter would be more reasonable.
Considering Carter's suggestion that fuel tanks be taken out of ESU (fine with
me), that would be 1 ESU gives 2 liters of fuel capacity. or a 20 liter tank
would take up 10 ESU. Comments?
As to mass of the tank, lets calculate for a full tank as Roberson suggest.
Therefore mass would be about .8 time the tanks capacity.
For batteries how about 1 ESU provides 20 PFs ( for ArkAngel: PF's are our
unit of stored electrical fuel. Check the DSF for more details on their
comparison to regular fuel.) As for mass of batteries, maybe 10 PFs equal 1
kg. does this make sense? Should a battery of 200 PFs have a mass of 20 kg?
