    Fuel flow meter

    Dave Hi!
    A range are available and the best are based on Floscan Transducer. I flew today in a 912 Europa with an ELBA Unit. Very simple to use with flow and fuel to go. I have the Matronics FuelChec on the Europa 912 powered Aircraft I built and fly. A Flowscan facility can be added to Grand Rapids EIS. On my Sluka Microlight I use a Marine type fuel flow and totaliser. It works well and cost around $200.
    They are definitely an asset and allow much improved fuel flow against speed or endurance. Today we set 14 liters per hour getting an indicated of 115kts. It's quite an enlightment how much extra fuel can be burned to get little or no improvement in performance if you cant measure it.
    Regards
