fuel tank specs
i am looking for some general rules to follow.
for simplicity say the fuel tank is 36'' wide, 12'' high and 12'' fore to aft. 2 baffles make 3 compartments, each about a foot square. floor of tank slopes down forward about 8 deg. when longerons are level. max. fuel burn at w.o.t for 110 hp about 10 gph.criuse burn 5.5 gph.
to allow fuel to fuel to flow to engine i am thinking 3- 3/8'' holes at the bottom of each baffle.one full forward, another an inch aft of that and the 3rd at the aft edge.
for venting the same set up but the holes would be at the top edge of the baffles.
for fuel flow thru tank while refueling i really don't know. maybe 2 in each baffle, 8'' above the floor of the tank? i won't even guess at their size.
so.........am i close, right on, or way out in left field? i would like some advice from someone who has been there.
thanks for any input.
