207WF Posted August 11, 2012 Report Share Posted August 11, 2012 I just got back from an 11 hour multileg trip around California. It has been very hot (over 100F on the ground, 77F at 9500 feet), and I had to reduce power quite a bit in the climb for oil temps. Even with so much time at reduced power (30-40 minutes to claw my way up), and then using my normal cruise power settings(more throttle then I had on in the climb) my fuel flow was 5.6 gph hobbs. Normally, I see only 4.6 gph. Should I be worried, or could the hot temps do this? WF Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
