Let us override inserters remove fuel from furnaces

Wouldn't it be great if I could smelt steel early game by letting the inserter behind the 1st furnace take coal out to give to the second furnace?

Filter inserters are literally red science. You don't need any mods to accomplish this, just a handful of green circuits.

I think that there's no way to take the fuel out of a furnace at present are you asking for this ability? cause that would mess up automation of plates since coal would go onto those belts

No. It's about:

a) burner inserters taking fuel out of a furnace to use it themself.
b) inserters taking fuel out of a furnace IF they insert it into a fuel using entity

The two mentioned mods make that change and coal does not end up on your output belt.

It's hard to keep track of how things work like this, since the devs keep changing it.

Currently though, you can ripple science packs through labs by having inserters remove them from one lab to put in another.... unless they turned that off again.
