For me, I'd leave it at 2000 fuel. More than that feels like a cheat to me.

To me the AWACS requires a longer loiter time to be useful, otherwise it's either having to go through the chore of launching it every day or not being that useful. And it is becoming useful... I got lucky and detected two UFO scouts by patrolling Australia with it this month and I think I'd actually buy it on another playthrough.

I'm playing a new game with the E-3 and it's working the same way,  being useful either to scout or to tail alien ships.

The other downside to the 6000 fuel version is refuel time, unless you bump that up.
