markmn Posted January 29, 2011 Report Share Posted January 29, 2011 I picked up the P2008 two weeks ago and have had fuel starvation twice now. The plane has 25 total hours. The first time I had just left the airport and the motor would quickly drop rpms to approx 4400 the back to 5200 and kept doing this. I turned around and landed. I did a full power runup on the ground and after about thirty seconds it did it again on the ground. I checked fuel pressure and it was like 1.5 Normal operating range is between 2 and 4. I resumped the tanks and cleaned the gascolator. It was not very dirty. I tried it a few more times on the ground at full power and the fuel pressure stayed in the normal operating range without the aux pump. Today it happened again. I was close to the airport again. I turned on the fuel pump and pressure went back into the normal range. Landed and resumped. Fuel pressure seemed normal again with out aux pump. I flew in the pattern for a while but Im not leaving the airport till this is figured out. When I turned the aux fuel pump off in the pattern and went to full power the pressure went into the red all three times I tried it. Rotax certified shop at 20 minutes away at Stanton MN.
