Default Fuel Usage In SH4

What files in SH4 apply to fuel usage. I'd like to take a look at them.
I should mention that this for US submarines.

AFAIK it's in each units sim file, and is a simple max range at speed setting. Be warned though, there is a stock bug that's unable to be resolved completely that causes the player to consume more fuel at lower speeds.

also some files are fubar and just wont act right

what i mean by that is one sub you change the values and get the expected results, but another sub you may change the same values and get no changes at all.

the s-class boats are the worst, for my realistic s-class mod, i spent weeks tweaking the files with endless hours of testing trying to get a realistic fuel consumption and battery life yet had to settle for "close enough" with both still being far from realistic.
