    High price of avgas

    The price of avgas has really shot up lately at 1L0.

    I finally figured out how to save some money on it.

    I only fill the tank half way.

    *** Well, I guess that would lower gross weight, so you will fly further
    on less gas....

    Supposing one wanted to fly from A to B as cheap as possible?
    What altitude and airspeeds would one fly? Remembering that costs include
    hourly costs of operation - oil changes every 25 hours etc. Wow, it's a
    calculus problem .

    High price of avgas

    I figured out how to same money on gas, I bought a $12 pump and 30' of hose and now I just pull up to the Cessna's on the ramp, I have saved a small furtune in AVGAS, the Cessna drivers are trying to figure out why there fuel burn is so how though.

    I'm inly joking!!!

    There is a decent program called "CruiseAlt" which can figure this
    out. You initially configure the program with values from your POH.
    Then from there it will calculate what altitude is the most efficient
    overall for your plane.

    You can even plug in winds aloft forecasts at various altitudes and
    the program will take that into consideration as well when showing
    you the most efficient cruise altitude.

    The program is freeware and is written by the same guy that wrote the
    X-Plane Flight Simulator. It is available for both Mac and Windows here:
