G'day tankers - hope you're all getting some good hunting in and hope to be getting some hunting in for myself before September.
 
One of my considerations of driving a vehicle is silver return on investment and cost per round.
I tend to run  vehicles without auto canons/loaders, with  large capacity ammo racks, a full compliment of standard shells, maybe 5 or so Premium shells.
I don't recollect too many situations where I have ran out of Ammo or really even come close - except in WS. 
I tend to die 75% or more of the MP battles I'm in.
 
In thinking about this and the repair costs of a destroyed tank, since a bunch of the ammo is wasted every time I've had my tank knocked out, my silver returns are presumably going to be reduced by the total amount of ammo loaded into the tank regardless of whether I've shot any of it.
I could be completely wrong with this presumption, the cost might be fixed for a destroyed tank regardless of how much ammo was loaded into the tank but at this stage, working on the premise that my assumption is accurate, I expect, I can make more silver simply by carrying less ammo in many of my vehicles. Dying less would be better, but I haven't worked out how to control that consistently yet.
 
The question is how much is too little and how much is too much then needs to be asked and am curious as to how the community handles this equation or even if it is something that is thought about?
 
To add to that equation, if I expect to be killed in battle and have premium(APCR) ammo, is it thought better to use premium less conservatively with the idea that if I don't use it it's a wasted cost or is it better to conserve for when I might truly need it? 
 
I expect answers might vary from tank to tank and tanker to tanker. .

You only pay for ammo if it is fired with auto-resupply on (which it is by default) and when buying ammo in the garage. Any left on your tank is not lost and as such, not payed for in the destruction of your vehicle.

i recommend turning autosupply off when you are close to unlocking the next tank.

when you sell a tank, all ammo is lost.

I'm pretty sure the rounds left get put in reserve...

that’s not entirely true max has said in the past that  you sell all the ammo when you sell the tank. However you would make more money expending those rounds before you sold the tank

It may have been that you get the silver equivalent of the premium rounds now that I think about it. I think our friend is right up above when it comes to standard rounds

Aren't they sent to the reserves if another tank uses the same ammo?

Remember, it's just a game!

tested it, ammo between tanks with the same gun is not shared.

Thanks all.

OK so my assumption then was wrong.... Glad I asked :).

Along the same lines, Unused repair kits/extinguishers/food etc they are consumed when tank gets destroyed right? or am I wrong about those too?

food gets used but unused consumables do not, that is why it is great to carry large first aid and repair kits just to have the passive buffs

with food, from my understanding, it instantly gets used at battle start

Thank you. I always thought my consumables would get resupplied regardless. I think I have 100s of the large extinguishers and repair kits stockpiled - I'll start making use of them if they aren't lost when the tank is knocked out. Obviously the ones which are manually activated are consumed.

those only get consumed when activated (if you mean the small repair, first aid and fire extinguisher)
