Thanks for the advice, I'll treat the 100hrs as a percentage and base it on the 30% rule as indicated on the Rotax service bulletin.

Many thanks

Rotax 912 mogas/avgas

I know that the use of avgas reduces the time before service from 100hrs to 50hrs. Can anyone tell me what the ratio of mogas to avgas is if using mogas as the primary fuel, but filling up with avgas on trips out, before I have to consider reducing to the 50hrs for a service?

Cheers

Rans s6 116 912

Most grateful for some advice on how to replace the fuel lines that act as the fuel guage/sights for the wing tanks.
I'm told that dropping the wings may be the best option. All advice gratefully received.

Henstridge Airfield

Had the misfortune to have an undercarriage fold on me last Saturday at Henstridge. The assistance, and hospitality displayed to myself was extremely welcoming, friendly and supportive, and the ensuing hearty breakfast fit for a 'trucker', ensured all my woes were forgotten (temporarily). If you're ...
