    Safe transfer of fuel from portable cans cans to fuel tanks

    Found an easier way to transfer fuel from plastic gas cans to c172 plane using simple & cheap jiggle siphon hose. Works great, empting 5 gal can in about 3 minutes….. I let it flow as I do walk around. I use regular ethanol car gas, so fill cans on way to airport. The flow is fast enough that...

    MOGAS TAX rebates

    Seems there is a lot of us lucky enough to be able to burn MOGAS. Curious how many are getting the street and highway taxes back, and what their state requires. I have a V8 conversion in a c172 and rarely burn AVGAS. I fill up my SUV across the street from the airport with 85 octane ethanol car...

    Compact Low Volt warning lamp interest?

But we wanted a self-contained big red idiot light that would illuminate if voltage from either battery drops below...

    Need some expert prop help

    Here's the deal: I am putting a Chevy V8 on a C172 (don't ask). The engine is limited to 210 HP by RPM limiter (2700 engine RPM max) and will be attached to a PSRU capable of a 1.7 to 1.2:1 reduction ratio (depending on best RPM for performance), so prop RPM can be anywhere from 1600-2250 max...
