Fuel For Thought

 

How many pilots have the option of going faster OR saving fuel with their engine?  Pilots who upgrade their O-470 for a Texas Skyways O-520 F/TS do.

 
When we install an O-520 F/TS in your 182 you get to choose.  You’ll get all the benefits every pilot wants in a more powerful engine -- shorter takeoffs, faster climb, increased air speed, arriving at your destination sooner, and more miles between 100 hour inspections – all at your command.  BUT, if you’re interested in fuel economy, simply back off the throttle of the O-520 F/TS to 130 KTAS and you’ll save about 3GPH.


Here’s how it looks:

Horsepower Engine Air Speed  Fuel Use
230 HP O-470 130 KTAS 12 GPH
280 HP O-520 F/TS 130 KTAS 9 GPH
280 HP O-520 F/TS  155 KTAS  14 GPH

 


Save fuel OR go further faster.  Now you have a choice!

 

The Texas Skyways O-520 F/TS engine modification offers 2500 TBO, a larger non-congealing oil cooler, and our exclusive Total Drain Oil Sump for complete removal of all sludgy contaminants from the bottom of the sump.
