    MOGAS/E85 etc.?

    Since 2002 here in Brazil Embraer manufactures an ag plane named Ipanema (after Rio´s beach and music Girl from Ipanema) that is ethanol powered. Its engine is a Lyc 540 injected.

    The Lone Ranger - a Ranger/SD-1/Aeromax based design

    To me seems a lot of wasted wood when cutting out those voids. Why not just use the fillets?
