What does anyone think about running av gas in a BBC w/blower?
Nice!!! It aint like you can "paddle" your plane back to the airstrip..... Did you have a real failure, or just shitty performance? Any engine damage?.....Be careful, though - two airports I have been to recently (with my airplane) have had "tainted" fuel - they were separated by over 600 miles. AvGas has a VERY different smell than pump gas (Av Gas is low odor, blue, and almost good smelling), so if it smells wrong take it easy with the boost.
Also, for future reference for others who may ask this question - 100LL will damage O2 sensors in short order.
Ha ha, that's true - but like Ron White says, you can be first to the scene of the crash...Nice!!! It aint like you can "paddle" your plane back to the airstrip..... Did you have a real failure, or just shitty performance? Any engine damage?.....
First one was KSWW, I would have to go back through records to find the other one...it was around St Louis, MO.What locations were the tainted fuel at? I Am in the northwest. Also not STC'd for the mo gas but the low compression round motor is approved, though I have never ran any.
You can land anyware once.
That is a fan to keep the pilot cool. If you don't belive it just watch them sweat when it quits turning.
To keep on topic I buy the 110LL mostly through Av center and save twenty cents a gallon going prepaid card. It helps with the habit and you have to pay sooner or later anyhow.
Not to booger yet. And to keep it on track yes on the 110LL in blown BBC. Rember the plug readings change with the lead.
