Better fuel injection for small ships

From Elite Wiki

Smaller ships burn less fuel when using injectors:

  • Adder: -40%
  • Moray: -24%
  • Cobra MK1: -10%
  • Fer De Lance: -10%


Those ships have a small cargo bay so they are better used for contracts or bounty hunting than for trading or mining. An improved burning rate means that the player can be more confident when jumping to an unsafe system, because injectors are the main means to escape dangerous situations (for instance turning a "1 vs 7" fight versus a "1 vs 2" fight by hitting the injectors and dealing with the enemies that could follow). It also allows escaping masslocks by injecting more often, or to overtake other ships near stations and dock earlier, hence saving a few minutes here and there which can make a difference for long contracts.

It's also useful together with my other OXP Missiles modification that modifies the behavior of missiles because one needs to hit injectors more often in order to avoid missiles.
