Burner inserter fuel-related behaviour

Post by Dragonling » Fri Sep 13, 2019 5:45 am

I am using burner inserters to feed ammo to turrets. For that I run belts with ammo on one side and wood on the other side.
It becomes a problem with freshly placed inserters, when they start loading up ammo first, as this leaves them stuck with no fuel.

With that being said, I would appreciate a mod, that would prohibit vanilla burner inserters from moving non-fuel items, until the inserter has enough fuel reserve to store fuel with its next move.
Or the mod could implement the behavior in a different way. For example, a burner inserter would be able to take a fuel item into itself even when "no fuel" icon is displayed on top of it.

Try to use another belt side for ammo.

Or this mod:
