You still need to manually set how much of that infinite ingredient you produce. In your example you have 3.2 petrol / s but still 0 water / s which gives 0 sulfur / s. For auto to work you have to set all ingredients or final product manually. In your example those are water, petrol, iron and copper.
Thanks. I figured it out just now too, I was missing the final product like you say.
All I needed was to create a battery output
node and hook it up to the output of the battery recipe, then set its rate to some really high number (like 1000/s). Then the actual battery output rate was displayed in parentheses on the output node. I didn't set any intermediate rates manually, only the petrol gas infinite output node rate and the arbitrarily high battery production rate, the rest were auto calculated no problem once I made the output node:
is auto except the petrol gas infinite supply rate and 1000/s battery rate, and from this it shows that I can produce 1.07 batteries/s from 3.2 petrol/s.
Only problem is it doesn't show the water/plate production rates needed to produce 1.07/s batteries, for some reason it shows those for the 1000/s battery values (I daresay it may be a bug? e.g. the final battery recipe does not need 4000 plants in this case, and it's not taking in 1000 iron plates per second, but I dunno). The only way to get that is to first
set the battery rate high to figure out how many you can actually produce, then
set the battery rate to the calculated value (1.07 in this case) to get the rest of the values right.
