Many features of GT4 wasn't in GT5Prologue, ex.. Fuel meter, tyre wear, many other old settings etc.
In prologue there is no tyre wear, and the fuel cant end like in gt4 etc...
So I'm just curious about it, its nothing important but still if it will remain more people will be satisfied
I know PD rewrited GT5 from zero, so im afraid they might forget something... And I hope they don't..
Small things are those what makes GT series BIG

I don't know about the fuel gauge but knowing PD it will be on the cars dashboard in the In-Car view, on GT5P there is a fuel warning light in the bottom right corner of the screen.
Tire wear has been in since GT2 so i think that will be staying.
Let me find a description for you..... Here we are!

correction. Tyre damage has being in GT since the very first GT.
it was 4 bars in a square that went from blue to green (to say they are warm) then from green to red (when you pushed them)
also. I do hope there is a fuel thing and so on too. Its all part of the realism really and it would be fun online to see people on the side of the road waiting on the AA

the biggie for me has to be realistic tyre wear. i dont want to do 4-5 laps of le mans in an lmp1 car to need to change my tyres, or even refuel for that matter. the r10 tdi did about 90 minutes before refueling and group c cars like the nissans (r390, r92 and r89) were made to go longer between trips to esso, all group c cars were, that was the group c regulation.

Because GT is a sim, I expect PD to continue to take liberties with the ratio of laps before refueling or tire changes.
If an off-line race is 20 laps and it includes changing tires or refueling as a strategy, you have to fit the pitstop in somewhere. It's just the way it is.

I do remember getting quite annoyed with GT4 and long races. That F1 championship especially. Strap super-hard race tyres and they last maximum 12 laps of somewhere like Mid-Field, which isnt an especially hard on tyres track.
Take last weeks F1. 35 laps of the 2 minute lap in Bahrain. And the tyres were fine.
I hope GT5 has good regulations this time over. I loved GT2 for the BHP limits. If GT5 has an upgraded PP system like GT5p had, then that would be fine. I think tyre wear and fuel consumption needs to be addressed. Also, if you could choose how much fuel is in the car for each race that would be great. That kind of thing.
