      80 hp 912 UL with ground adjustable WD propeller in Rans S6-116.

      4,800 rpm all day & 14 L/h for 100 mph GPS checked. (Short field take-off solo last Saturday, 5,200 rpm WOT & under 50 yds off soggy grass strip)

          The engine doesn't care up to max continuous. It's just a question of what fuel consumption you find personally acceptable, what sort of a hurry you are in, and the flight conditions - on a bumpy day it will be a hard and bumpy ride at high speed and more pleasant if you slow down a bit.

          Also each individual aircraft / engine / prop have sweet spots where they run more smoothly than other RPM's.
