Why do all of the Cyrene vehicles have sucky eco?

    As you can see from this chart I have created that all of Cyrene's vehicles have totally crap eco when compared to the Calypso variants.

    Another discrepancy is that the Dragonfly which holds 2 people has the same fuel use and speed as the lancer which only holds 1 person.

    Is this the intended balance of things or is this a mistake that was overlooked?
    This beg's the question "Why should I bother buying Cyrene's vehicles when they are less effective then the VTOL from Calypso?

    So its 100% cool that the single seat Lancer has the same flight speed and oil use as the 7 seat Gungnir?

    This is : crap, baloney, bunk, drivel, bunkum, claptrap, hogwash, poppycock, ridiculous, rigmarole, twaddle, feeble

    Take your pick of a less offensive adjective.

    Unusually I have to agree with Thanatos on this one. Spending all that time to work out the eco/decay of a vehicle takes the joy out of flying around in a lancer.

    How about spending more time flying/driving around Cyrene instead of worrying about a few ped.

    So here is the answer.
    You trade fuel consumption,top speed; for more engine power "acceleration?" , SI , and armor values.
    The dragonfly somehow carries more items/weight then the lancer even though it has 2 seats and the same stats otherwise.

    I really do feel that some adjustment is needed.

    Did you account for the Lancers submersible feature? Beside people who buy the dragonfly or lancer, dont really care about fuel economy.
