Petro Fuel Tank gets refueled over set limit after rocket landing

Whenever my rocket returns and gets refueled again, the fuel tank with a limit set to below 900kg, e.g. 200kg of fuel, continues to get filled over the threshold and a dupe comes and tries to empty the excess fuel, but it continues to get filled up. It only stops when I readjust the limit.

1) Set fuel tank automated storage capacity below 900kg -- 2) send and return rocket -- 3) refuel immediately with pipe -- 4) see capacity fill over limit

Was there a game reload between sending a rocket and its return?

It might be related to this bug being fixed incorrectly: 

oh... it was your bug report as well))

@bzzz yes, iirc there was a savegame load between launch and landing. That was my thought as well that meddling with the tank behavior might have had unintended side-effects.

I stumbled upon a possible workaround for the meantime.

If you can babysit the return of your rocket and pause the game before the tank begins refueling (or catch it in time while still under the desired kg setting), changing the tank's silder/text value to any other value and back again should allow you to reuse the tank without rebuilding it.

Once you quit and reload you have to do it again, like the rebuild route.

This is really annoying.

Same here. I had to build a special tank for the dupes to get rid of all the overfill.
