Default Is the C3 fuel implemented?

I did a couple of tests in solo, to compare engine power with C3 fuel injecter installed and without, and there was no difference.
If someone has some technical informaions about this system, I'm interested aswell. It's just for my own knowledge.

C3 in mission editor does not mean C3 injection, it means extra fuel in 3rd fuel tank behind cockpit (auxiliary fuel tank), check plane weight with it and without.
It wil NOT increase plane performance, if it is implemented, it only increase plane endurance.

It was discussed several times here.

It will decrease plane performance due to shift in center of gravity.

I think not exactly performance, probably handling becomes fiddly.

This was dealt with by moving the bombrack ETC 501 forward 20cm. So if you got the extra fuel tank behind the pilot you should keep the bombrack to eliminate the gravity shift.

I should have chosen my words more carefully. I am talking about the C3 injector system, which does boost engine power. From what you say the C3 fuel option isn’t related to the injector system, thanks for that answer, but that’s not the answer to the question I had in head (my bad on that one). So is the C3 injector implemented? From the module description and the wikipedia page of the Anton, there definitely should be this system aboard that plane and it is meant to boost engine power.

I think, if everything happens as said, it'll be for F-8 model we also will get but not for the current A-8. That's apparently what historical sources says and it's been discussed in several other threads here. But the aft fuel tank (marked C3) can be used anyway for fuel to increase endurance.

There has been a lengthy conversation on that topic in this thread:
https://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=242847

Basically, ED's stance is that it did not have it, thus, it is not in game.

they should have designed it to run on coal. because in 1944 all they had was synthetic oil made from coal.

and the allied oil campaign was quickly reducing that production to 0.

in fact the oil campaign is the only strategic bombing campaign to actually work.
and it only needed 2% of the bombs dropped strategically.

why the plane had a tank for funky fuel that was never actually used.
