Fuel Calibration Question...
Hi all, tried a search with no luck. I am confused about the fuel system calibration on PAP G8-1. Roll main wheels onto 2" blocks (this would give me a slight 'nose down' attitude??) Then add 4 gallons incrementally, roll off the blocks and check the red, no takeoff sticker on the mechanical gauge. Then roll back onto 2" blocks and continue to add 2 gal/time until 16 gal. So why the 2" blocks on the mains? Don't I want the plane perfectly level during this calibration? What am I missing by raising the mains and keeping the nosewheel on the ground? Thanks for any clarification!
