"Bingo" (or "bingo fuel") is Viper pilot slang that indicates that their fighter's fuel reserves are too low to continue their mission and have the minimum amount of fuel necessary to return to their battlestar before running out.

A pilot usually makes the declaration to their wingman, CAG or battlestar by shouting "bingo fuel!".

A Viper that's out of fuel is virtually impossible to fly, yet Kara Thrace manages to do so after she is involved with an in-flight accident that severs her fuel line (Torn).
