i've got hundreds of large repair kits, medkts, large fire extinguishers and foody things like improved combat rations. now that consumables recharge i don't see the need for premium ones except fire extinguishers, and speaking of fire extinguishers, i never give them up to make space for foody things (or should i)? so are those premium consumables better sold now that the discount is over or used up? each is worth 6.66 of their small version when bought on discount.

Never sell large fire extinguishers. They are so good that they should be on every tank.

Large medical kit and large first aid kit - if you run premium account then you should be able to afford to run then on every tank.

Food consumerables is more interesting. Some tanks need food. I play most of my lights with food. I play hardly any heavies with food. TDs and mediums also vary depending on tank. Whether I swop out extinguisher, or med kit depends on the vehicle and more importantly which crew perks I have trained in that vehicle. I never sell consumerables that I have got via missions as inevitably I find a vehicle that has a use for them.

If you need the credits then sell them, it's not like they cost you anything originally.

I dont use large repair kits or med kits nor automatic fire extinguishers. Only food on some tanks. 

 

Selling them is good income.

Sell them when the price is high, and you will get enough squidgets to buy them all back when the price is low.

I keep them as credit reserve (like a savings account). Woth equipment I have around 6m in reserve. If I need credits in a hurry, for a temporary discount for example, I can sell the stuff.

Don't use any premium consumables, as I run F2P account and cannot be bothered to grind credits often. By not shooting gold and buying stuff on discount I usually have enough credits, my xp progress is usually limiting factor...

I sell everything except AFEs which I use only on my LT tanks. Checked the depot today and there was some coffee...350.000 quick credits.

since I drive mostly everything from tier 6 and upwards

with premium consumables, you can't have too much repair kits.

Also I try to keep my coffee reserves topped off whenever there is a discount.

 

but - I sometimes sell the excess automatic extinguishers, when there are more than 150 on stock

Same here. I have a clear up every few months as it’s a bit like finding a tenner in the pocket of a pair of jeans you haven’t worn for quite sometime.

They're yours, do whatever suits you.

If you play clan wars and stuff, you might find them useful though,

probably keep the fire extinguishers for clan battles. Other stuff it's up to you.

If you are not using them, then there is no point in keeping them. Also having too much is.. well. overkill. Realistically you don't need 400 automatic f.e. 100 is more than plenty as you don't use them that often. And if you do decide to use premium consumables there are enough sales to stock up on them.

Large repair kit shortens repair time even if you don't use it. Large med kit protects your crew from injury.  Auto fire extinguisher reduces the risk of fire whether you use it or not.

 

So yeah, sell them.

Sell them. Most of them have advantage that don't balance the huge cost. I keep a 50 units stock for medkit, AFE and repair kit, and a 10 units stock for every food (never know, may be usefull for clan game modes...) and sell every extra unit I got. I got more than 4 milion credit the first time I sold them! :)
