    Resistance of a conductor is usually stated in ohms/ft or some other length. Voltage drop is stated similarly because V=IR. The length of the conductor in a fuse is very short, its resistance and voltage drop are negligible.

    I just looked at a spec sheet for Littelfuse ATO/ATC fuses. For a 10A ATO fuse the typical resistance is 7.7 mOhm. That's under 8 THOUSANDTHS of an OHM. Also, as the fuse current rating rises, the resistance decreases, as expected. A 40A ATO fuse has under 1.5 mOhm of resistance. Voltage drops are therefore negligible, with a 40A ATO fuse having under 60 mV drop in a 12V circuit at full current rating. Hardly anything to even consider in circuit design.
