The Oscar-B Fuel Tank provides fuel to attached liquid fuel engines.

It is currently the smallest liquid fuel tank in the game. It only carries 70% of the capacity of the next largest fuel tank (the ROUND-8 Toroidal Fuel Tank) and less than 7% of the capacity of the FL-T200 Fuel Tank.

The Oscar-B's mass ratio (5.245) is slightly worse than that of the Round-8 (5.44), and significantly worse than an FL-T or Rockomaxx tank (9). Additionally the oxidizer volume is 0.0094 l short thus the ratio between oxidizer and liquid fuel is not exactly matched. Also, it cannot be attached radially.

Description

The Oscar-B Fuel Tank from Probodobodyne is a compact fuel container for small space probes, or a backup tank for other small spacecraft. Do not wash in cold water, or feed after midnight.
