Things I liked: It looks and feels good. Recoil and sound are minimal.
Things I would have changed: The muzzle piece should be smaller. Folding the barrel to load is harder than it should be when you have to grab it 5 inches above the end The bipod is cool but the small plastic retainer broke the second time I used it. That part needs a lot of work. The scope it comes with is obviously inexpensive but I could not get it accurate enough to my liking.
What others should know: Its heavy and looks great but the bipod is lousy. Swap the scope and it's fun to shoot.
Things I liked: Just about everything. The .177 Fuel I have is a nice gun, good for small game up to raccoon size. With H&N Sniper Medium pellets and a cheapo little Tasco 3-9x40 I am shooting a 1" pattern at 40 yards, and about 2" at 60 yards.
Things I would have changed: Something different for the bipod... stabilize it, stiffen it, just make it more solid.
What others should know: Sixty yards seems to be about the max for this gun. H&N Sniper Magnums are too heavy, Sniper Lights don't carry any accuracy down range, but Sniper Mediums seem to be the honey spot. I've been through at least a dozen different kinds of pellets in this gun. Crossman wadcutters have excellent accuracy at 20-30 yards, but don't carry enough energy to do anything beyond that. I have yet to find a pointed pellet that is accurate beyond 10 yards. Any round with a polymer jacket simply fouls the barrel. No accuracy to speak of. At this point H&N Sniper Mediums at 8.5 grains combined with their shape are accurate enough to pick the head off a wild turkey at 60 yards. Body shots will work, but the energy is low enough by that range you'll be chasing an injured animal for a bit. I plan to buy this gun in .22 before long. I recommend either caliber.
Things I liked: looks good
Things I would have changed: Make sure the air rifle is a little more accurate at 10 yd's.
What others should know: Shot rifle at 10 yd's with scope that came with it. Shot around 8 " low with scope all the up. Bought new scope, UTG VARMINT/PREDATOR SPC-U394 AOIEW. Shot 4" low at 10 yd's turned all the way up. Don't know what to do now.

I have this rifle in .177. I'm in the market for a .22. It's come down to a choice between the Fuel and a Benjamin. What are the opinions of my fellow Fuel owners? I REALLY like this gun, but the Benji is slightly lighter and faster. What say you?
Does the pellet have to be seated ? How far down ?
Seating usually varies from gun to gun in terms of effectiveness. So you'll have to experiment to see what works best with your pellets and rifle.
Can the included Weaver/Picatinny mount be easily removed to install a compensating mount like the UTG Super Slim 20 MOA mount? I don't need it yet as when first installing the included scope on the included mounts I was 4 inches high at 25 ft. Well within scope adjustment range.
