Version: 0.2.3
Date: 2020-02-10
  Bugfixes:
    - Fixed that inserters might grab fuel for wich their target has no room because all slots contain other fuel items.
  Features:
    - Self refuel cheat if enabled (the default), now once in a while fuels unpowered burner inserters with a minuscule amount of free fuel. This fully removes the need to manually feed burner inserters ever again. They slowly fix themselves. The out-of-power-icon keeps flashing until the inserter has itself properly fueled again.
