Stacy Posted April 21, 2017 Report Share Posted April 21, 2017 After flying for 45 minutes, I added full power to climb higher. The high oil pressure warning light came on. I reduced RPM's and the light went off. The pressure on the Dynon peaked at around 100 lbs. I flew for maybe two hours, at 5200 RPM's, and the pressure was fine. But, before reaching home, I had to continue to reduce power to keep the oil pressure down. The last thirty minutes of the flight, I had to keep the RPM's down to 4,600. I didn't check the log, but I think I have less than 25 hours on the oil and filter change. During that time, I had one flight that required me to put in 10 gallons of 100LL. On the flight where the problem started, I had added 21 gallons of 100 LL. I'm going to change the oil and filter when I get time, as well as cut the filter open. During my previous oil and filter change, I had flown 43 hours, without out the need to add oil, and filter looked good. I had probably used about 30 gallons of 100 LL, but like the week ends flight, it was mixed with 91 octane. What are your thoughts on what is going on?
