Default Unusable fuel

Does anyone have any numbers for the unusable fuel for the -14?

If you're in level flight, it's less than a 12oz can of soda.
Not that it would be safe to run down that far, because at nose down attitudes you probably would un-port the fuel inlet, but in level flight, it's basically all useable.

Yes. Planning to do the tests but wanted to see what others are finding so as to know if my results are in the right ballpark.

Ran the unusable fuel test in a level flight attitude and got between 0.1 and 0.2 gal.
