    That is good to know. We are between homebuilts right now (sold my RV-8 and am only half done my 4pl Bearhawk) so we'll be coming in our Maule, which probably makes the N40 our best choice.

    I get 165kts (189mph) as a cross country cruise on my RV-8. Fixed pitch 3 blade Catto, 200hp IO-360, 9.2 gals per hour. I could go faster, but I'm too cheap to burn more fuel :-)
