    replied to Dynon Skyview fuel quantity
    Good news. I removed the cowls and checked the sensor connection. When I turned the Dynon back on, it correctly read 10 gal. I decided to drain all the fuel and recalibrate following the instructions. Initially I made an error and selected "left tank" and as I filled the tank two gallons at...

Craig McPerson (Blue Skies PPC) in Blum TX found that the carbs were way out of balance, the oil return line was kinked, the screen in the filter to the electric fuel pump was partially clogged. The fuel filters were in series as the electric fuel pump was in series on the same fuel line....
