    What's the reason people are doing this? I would think any weight savings on the engine would be lost by all the weight in extra fuel you would have to carry. Is it a cost thing with some parts of the country having access to cheap fuel? Or is it more like a Harley rider feeling he needs louder mufflers mentality; realizing there's no benefit other than the change in noise?
    I'm still waiting for someone to build a wood gas converter to fit inside an Avid. (And I've lost countless hours designing such a system in my head.) Totally not practical but it would sure  be cool to be able to land somewhere and top off your tank with twigs and sticks and then continue on your way for free and not be tied by a long leash to a gas pump. The last thing most pilots want on a rag covered airplane is a wood burning stove. I'm in the "I don't care, I want it anyway" category.

    Seen several of these talked up but nothing really hitting the market. Innodyn comes to mind. A friend of mine lost some money on that one.  The German model Stuttgart Engineering,that was put into the Avid several years ago has gone silent , no news is probably not good news.  10 gal/hr is pretty much a deal breaker for me. The cool factor is something to consider.  
    My friend put the Innodyn in a super cub (Turbine Cubs Of Wyoming).  Had flame out issues and burned way more fuel than advertised .  I should ask him w hat he did with that engine.

    Avid with a turbo prop?
    So I see 100 hp and 120 hp small turboprops.
    Throw cost out the window, as that is a non issue.
    My 4 has the big tanks. 28 gallons I think. So I could stay up for a while.

    Wow!!! Any update? You live out in the middle of no where like me looks like! My house is too close to the highway... So I am thinking of building another house 250 yards or so back and tearing down this one. Oh, one thing that is cool is my property is at least 3,500' long... And leveled and flat.

    My tail wheel teething was done in a Citabria... No flaps and a worn out motor...Hot summers in Louisiana. My instructor said do a power on stall... It never broke. I was just holding it there using all of the control surfaces... He screamed, "You have it stalled, WTF are  you doing?" 
    I was used to 150s and 152s... They would break... And you'd  roll over....
    What are the 3 rules? Airspeed, fuel, and fuel?

    That is why when someone says they are going to slosh their tanks I say 'NO, Don't do it!'

    Couldn't watch it, but heard it running.  Seems like some have rinsed tanks with acetone to get the cream out.  Have to be careful not to dissolve the fiberglass at the same time, as I think that is what the acetone will do if left in to long.  I would do a search on here and team kitfox to see what others did.  JImChuk

    Well as more dirt moving happens i dream of my new (to me) airplane flyin in the air!!!!!  Lots to clean after its been sittin, wireing is a rats nest of unorganized unmarked wiring, And the fuel lines could b routed better and cleaner to my liking.
    But bad thing is, all 4 finerglass wingtanks have the cream in them and its peelin off, started some resurch on repair, what say u all as best or easy way to repair.  She not going to fly this summer so have sometime to fix it up right.

    Chateau Gaillard in Normandy
    The old castle of Chateau Gaillard, in Normandy, as seen from my Avid.
    The caste was built by Richard the Lionheart, king of England and duke of Normandy, at the very end of the XIIth century to protect Normandy from his powerful neighbour the king of France. Richard called the castle "my beautiful one year daughter" as it was built in in a very short time, given the huge amount of stones used.
    It was besieged and captured by the French after only some years. (Reportedly, the French soldiers entered the castle by the toilet duct!)
