Default Submarine/Mod ship range

Hi guys. How could i increase a player ship (or submarine's) maximum range?

I ask because right now im playing the Fiji class cruiser out of Brisbane Aus. and im getting very conflicting reports on my max range. it seems i can make 8,000 nm at 14 knots but far far less at, say, 6 knots. thats odd to me, because shouldnt i be conserving fuel if i were going slower. It makes it weird when im trying to patrol a choke point because im burning 4x as much fuel as i would cruising at medium speed.

it might be simulating riding lower in the water causing more drag, thus using more fuel.

maybe tinker with your mass and/or draft height settings for it
