Fuel consumption - hanamalu to Honolulu

Recommended Posts

Hey, while down under still waits for ALaska, I've been flying clandestines when I find them.

 

Took off a bit light.

Have leaned mixture back to 10%,

airspeed 126kts, 7

% fuel left,

37.6 miles (?) left.

 

Never really thought about it before this flight that u can lean the mixture that much!

 

In real world, at 900ft, would you get such good economy?

 

What would happen to engine? Anything bad?

Guess it would melt :-)

I actually winged over avoiding the fuzz on the one I posted originally, but by leaning it early I was able to fly the whole 80+ miles (?) with only 12% fuel. I landed at ford island with 2% left.

 

Fun thing was when I hit Honolulu mainland and had to climb, I'd 4gotten to put mixture back up to 100%.... Had to circle away from ford island direction, climbed a gap and screamed down mountains, flew a valley/river, screenshotted my under bridge maneuver and then pitched up, deployed full flaps, rolled right and landed at ford island.

 

Love this game, and don't even have alaska yet!!!!

I play with auto mixture because I'm a very casual player, but I noticed on the steam forum it is said the EGT gauge is non-functional. Does changing the mixture actually do anything besides affect fuel usage? Can you play the game running super lean everywhere? Obviously in real-life you'd melt your pistons or rings or whatever, but Flight doesn't have engine damage that I know of.
