Had an interesting conversation with a friend yesterday in which we both wondered now that the 65 mile rule regarding max distance between fuel stops seems to be gone, how about also eliminating the inlet restrictor rule and substituting a max fuel cell capacity in its place. Since the fact of the restrictor being federally prohibited has not bothered anyone, perhaps a fuel tank rule would also be acceptable to the comunity.

There being a fixed amount of energy in a fixed amount of fuel, would this not result in a much cheaper to implement (major dyno time not required for tuning) and much easier to tech situation?

Maybe it has been tried, maybe there are too many uncontrolable "splash and dash" stops in the woods, maybe there are too many tubular "fuel tanks" made of steel out there. Maybe there are a hundred uncheckable other ways to cheat, we were wondering.

Anybody have any thoughts?

the 65 mile 'rule' is in the operations manual: "...services should be scheduled every 2-4 stages, no less than every 65 overall miles"

should - alows flexibility in number of stages, but I read "no less than every 65 overal miles" as a rule

not sure it had every been a rule - more of a recommendation in the past


All for any idea that gets rid of the restictor problem
