When you get a little free time I would love to chat with you about your power settings for the trip.

I sent you a PM with my telephone number if you would like to chat. My 66g turtle-pac could only be filled to 50g when laying horizontally on the passenger seat pan. Therefore, I needed to add a 20g Big Buddy turtle-pac to obtain the extra fuel capacity (and peace of mind) in Hilo. Upon landing at Concord I still had 4.5 hours of reserve fuel when burning 6 gph.

It sounds like you have a real super tanker of an aircraft.
