Looks like a nice plane for sale but I have a question for you. I have a 1950 with 290D and always get 105 mph in cruise and burn 10 gallons all the time. It always burned 8 gph before overhaul, after overhaul it has been 10 gph. I did change the metal prop to a new wood prop so I think that is most of it. But could you tell me your prop size and what rpm you cruise at? Thanks and good luck with your sale!
