Re: Larger fuel tank under seat + higher cabin headroom.

Sam Hoskins <shoskins@...>

Christopher, I have 32 gallons, which gives me a 750+ mile range. I did
endeavor to keep the tanks as large as possible, but the header and main are
close to stock. I think the Q-200 plans did call for a smaller header, but
I think that was solely to allow access to the engine mounting bolts. With
a little finagling I was able to keep it at 6.5 gallons. There are lots of
header tanks shown in the old Q-Talks. Here's what I have.

Header = 6.5

Main = 16.5

Aux = 9

Subject: [Q-LIST] Larger fuel tank under seat + higher cabin headroom.

Anyone here ever hear of anyone making the fuel tank taller in their Q
to fit more fuel in (solo flying) and then extending the top of the
canopy to make enough room for the pilot so he doesn't hit his head on
the glass?

I haven't studied how this might affect seating yet, if the tank is
raised whether the seating would become difficult to use the brake and
rudder. If someone has either studied or done so, please email me off
