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

It is currently the smallest liquid fuel tank in the game, containing enough fuel to run the tiny LV-1 at full throttle for just over 15 seconds. 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 liquid fuel volume is about 0.0077 units short thus the ratio between oxidizer and liquid fuel is not exactly matched. Also, it cannot be attached radially.

Product 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.
