Is it possible to sustain a large pos' PI fuels with 1 character in w-space?

Even with all the right planets, I'm going to say no.

I'm assuming here that you have Interplanetary and Command Centers to level 5, right?

Since PI was changed to have an extractor hub only extract one mineral type at a time, you will find it difficult to find a spot on the Lava planet where two items can be extracted in sufficient quantity to build the volume of PI you need.

For fuel you need (in P1 terms):

Chiral Structures - 3840/day
3x Precious Metals - 3840 x 3/day
2x Toxic Metals - 3840 x 2/day
2x Reactive Metals - 3840 x 2/day

Oxygen - at least 600/day (easy)

Water - 5760/day
Electrolytes - 5760/day

That is a total of 10 materials at between 3800 and 6000/day
The raw mats depend on the fertility of the planets, the rest is the math of the P1 factories of which you can get 8 or 9 on most planets and they produce 20 x 8 x 24 units/day

One assembly planet

LP + 8 P2 factories = Mech Parts, Enriched Uranium
LP + 6 P2 Factories = Coolant
LP + 8 P2 factories + P3 = Robotics

This will give you 72 robotics, 480 MP/ER, 720 Coolant per day

You need 744 robotics, 5952 coolant, 2976 EU, 3720 MP, and 18600 Oxygen every month.

As always, keep at least one extra months fuel in the POS before you relax and go on 'break' doing other things than PI.

Your one account has three characters though, right? Train them all up and you will have enough to do PI, but just one will not work.

Yes you can. I do it with on character with CCU4 and IPC4. I can stop running PI for a week and will not drop below 7 days of fuel.

All types of fuel? Probably not. Mainly because it would be very hard to find a system with the planets you want, AND the statics you want.

Otherwise, I produced Mechanical Parts, Coolant and Oxygen in enough quantity for 4 large towers, plus extra, with one character. We didn't have a lava planet, so I that's all I could make.

Our alliance has presence in many WH's. So far all the C2's and C3's have all the needed planets and 50% of the C4's do. It also helps that we generally only have 1 Large pos up in each system. The C3 I have a toon in has 12 planets. I use 2 X barren,1x lava,1x gas and a storm planet. The WH has a large tower, 2 x corp hanagrs, 2 x ship bay's and half a dozen manufacturing array's online, and of course hardners, guns, etc....
Does take a bit of time to get it fine tuned, but it is definitely possible...
