    For all, who has the European Version. Look here for Setub the .ini File. This worked for me.

    I have the Mod-Version 1.2.5 installed.

    @SYNTHESISE -- Fantastic mod, works perfectly, seamless install, awesome RP addition to the game :) Kudos to you SYNTHESISE.

    [Edit] P.S. I meant to ask, I managed to disable the Gas Station blips, but I can't see how to disable the Charge or Jerrycan blips. Could you tell me how please, if it's possible???

    Superb Mod..
    Bur I really got huge issue with it...specially when flying in plane or heli...
    It cost much more fuel...
    And I couldn't disable fuel usage. By clicking 10+ times given 'N' key I could disable it.
    How do remove this mod ?

    >> MAJOR ISSUE << - As reported by many before... Planes, Heli's and Jet... A Jet burns through a full tank in 7 seconds!! And a small twin engine plane in around 30 seconds!!

    And as the author hasn't even posted since September last year.... I'm guessing there isn't going to be a fix or update.
    Damn shame, this mod had real potential :(

    @Pr0nit -- There's an option in the ini file to "Can disable fuel mod = False". Change that to "True" save and restart GTA, then you should be able to disable the fuel mod when in a plane or heli.

    Well if anyone is having the blip problem with this mod I think I figured out a way to fix it. This is working for me ATM. So what I did was edit the INI file and removed True tag from all the locations. The stations no longer show blips on the map but you can still refuel and can find the stations with the little electric symbol on the map. I can now see all of my mission Blips and can still use this mod. YAY. The No More Disappearing Blips mod does not work so don't bother with it. This is the best I was able to come up with.... I wanted to write in the ability to remove the blips and bring hem back at will but I could not figure it out.

    Why do the electric cars use up their charge like a smartphone? I can't barely make it on a long trip before needing to set my destination as the next charging station. I can't really use them for just roaming around.

    why i can't still chose how much time it takes to recharge/fill the car? Put in the settings.ini file the time that it takes to recharge/fill the car in seconds

    Amazing mod, however multiple blips don't show up anymore, like the gun store blips or mission blips. Any way we can toggle them? I don't see it in the ini file.

    im loving this mod, works perfectly.
    i looked at you to do list and on the note of animation, if you could put there like a guy that will refill us (like in mafia) or just us doing it, that would be purely awesome. keep up the work!
