Asking here rather than starting my own thread: how does one check he amount of fuel present in a locomotive? This doesn't seem to happen in the above examples, or if it does, I'm totally missing it.

### Re: Fuelling a locomotive with conditions

I don't understand how this arithmetic combinator is wired to the system. The inserter keeps loading and loading, no matter what the train does :( One non-standard arithmetic combinator, counting the fuel as it is loaded into the locomotive. Wiring is standard for a counter: one wire from the inser...

In theory I have some many ideas and I know exactly how to do it. Just when I start wiring and using combinators, it doesn't work.
