When I try to jettison fuel, so that evil enemy of mine cannot use it
when boarding my ship, it does not happen. I get log message:

"Jettisoning Cargo: 422 fuel"

but surprise surprise, there is still 422t fuel...

Confirmed ..
I think it is due to system damage.

Don't rely on the information you see in the client. The value shown
there is (partially) randomized. The only sure way to confirm this is
to run a sim - or test it in real game.

I would call that a test in real game. ;-O

Ok, in this case it is a bug. Please, have the host files sent to Tim
and report the problem.

Thanks for making us aware!

I have captured several cat's paws as Crystal. I have not managed to
jettison fuel from any of those ships. All other stuff can be
jettisoned normally. Ships engines are gone usually, but no much / at
all system damage. I try some more tests and not to jettison all fuel
this time.

I believe it has been successful on my own ships. I have tried it on
alien hulls but didn't check that closely to see if it actually did it
or not.

AFAI understood it, the ship is owned by him...
