Also check WOT RPM on the ground, no wind, with the engine at operating temperature (meaning oil temp. at 180 or higher). Static RPM should be 4960 to 5020.

While I am new to the RV-12, I have been landing with 5 gallons of fuel.
Not a bad policy. I generally like to land with 5 gallons, although over the past year or so I've been known to let it get lower if the conditions and schedule justify it.

Default Fuel Burn

Looking back at some pictures I took of the Skyview, last Saturday they were:

6500 MSL 5300 RPM Left 1184 Right 1204
5500 MSL 5420 RPM Left 1251 Right 1279

A couple of weeks ago

3020 MSL 5100 RPM Left 1313 Right 1312
2500 MSL 5270 RPM Left 1318 Right 1326
