It worked fine for maybe 20 hours, and it's been crazy ever since. Not
crazy in a way that makes any sense....maybe 5% of the time I'd say it's
accurate, but most of the time it wanders quickly between the normal 3.8
gph and something like 50 gph!
I'm back to what always works...a paint stirring stick marked in
gallons, that I use as a dipstick to know exactly how much fuel I have
before takeoff, and exactly home much I land with, and knowing that I
normally burn something like 3.5 gph at altitude cruise....
I've pretty much decided not to spend hundreds of $$$$ and countless
hours installing another gadget and go with what has worked for 650
hours, look in the tank and clock the flight hours. I calculated the
dollars I would spend would get me 3000 miles of flying at $5 per gallon
of 100LL and I'll have less things to fail / troubleshoot. A good nap
brought things back in to perspective. You only have to calibrate the
paint stick once and it's good for a lifetime. :-)
