Not nit picky at all. I can understand where you're coming from.
That said, their name is already pretty visible

thats where the nit picky part comes in its not hard to just show listed items or to search for it all this would help is when you have it set to icon in your cargo not a big thing but also not hard to implement so i thought i would put it out there

Did someone cart three months of fuel out to a POS in the middle of nowhere before realizing it was the wrong type?
Totally have not done that... nope. >.>

As for the ideas.. sure I guess. It's not terribly important but can't see any real reason why not other than the bit of developer time to develop the icons and implement them.

But what colors for what race?

I always think of Gal as green, and Cal as blue, which are rather too close together for an easy visual difference.
Same with my impression of Minmatar as orange/brown and Amarr as tan/red.

What colors do we assign each of them in order to have a clear visual difference while still staying where people would automatically associate that color with that race?

Not as if there isn't precedence already for color coding by faction. It could even show the back ground normally shown for the towers of their respective races.

Cloaking is the closest thing to a "Pause Game" button one can get while in space.

Shhh don't let them know that they might tease me



as for colors using the current one for the ECM modules would work maybe darken the cal/gal variants a bit as those can sometimes look the same at a glace but i'm no psychologist so idk what colors people would react to best

Supported. If CCP can do it for ECM modules, they can certainly do it for fuel blocks and doing so makes just as much sense, if not more.

Id like to see it done for ice too, just a little red/blue/green/yellow on some part of the icon.

While this seems completely sensible, it's also worth mentioning that the four different types of fuel block are also somewhat different from one another. Granted you do have to look somewhat closely.
