Bill, on that flight we were running about 165 kts., and fuel burn was 9.2 gph. Much of the flight was at 12,000 ft or better, altitude matters. Here is a plot of our cross country flights where I graphed fuel efficiency (TAS / fuel burn) against altitude. Each point is a different flight, data averaged over a 30 min segment, constant conditions.
