Pedwarpimp Posted July 4, 2020 Share Posted July 4, 2020 Probably a simple/stupid question, but here goes anyway. Most of my flying is on my own so don’t get to see what others do, but I just find refuelling a PITA. I don’t fly too often so don’t really keep pre mixed fuel. Not that I have any issue with the mixing. More the filling up of the fuel tank. On a parajet zenith for what it’s worth. I’ve tried numerous ways, wiggle pipe, funnel etc. And always find it a messy or time consuming. I think my main issue is I use a Mr Funnel as that was what was advised when I learnt, but find it a little tiresome/awkward as it doesn’t flow very well Unless I’m holding it up out of the fuel tank. It gets even harder when trying to get the last drags out and end up inevitable with little spillages and end up feeling I need another pair of hands to hold everything in place. I’ve tried a longer/bigger funnel with a longer flexible hose as an option, but then not using the Mr funnel and find it more flimsy when pouring, especially if pouring more fuel in one go. so at present I mix my fuel In a mixing can then pour it in to a little 5L Jerry can and then with mr funnel fuel up which is easy to manage, , but as I said find it a faff especially if wanting more that 5L. It’s time consuming enough so that puts me off going out in the evenings after work. With that and setting up time. Do I accept that it is what it is and allow more time. I’m just convinced some of you Will have your refuelling down to a fine art and Probably be something simple and obvious. So any obvious or clever recommendations of what you use or do, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
