Typical Fuel Consumption for My 1962 Mooney M20C


My plane has better endurance than I do.

Here I am in Palm Springs, CA after a 468 mile leg. It took me 3 hours and 20 minutes. Total fuel consumption was 27.6 gallons!

I run 1 hour on right tank, then switch to left. After 2.5 hours there, I go back to right where I plan to land with another hour of fuel. Thanks to my new O & N Bladders, I’m carrying plenty of leftover.
