    Decalin RunUp and Oil Changes

    Just wondering if I use more than my 10 gallons or have to refuel elsewhere, when I get back I have to mix. Thank you again.

    Decalin RunUp and Oil Changes

    Hm... I had read 25 somewhere too, I'll have to find it. I think I'll do it at 25-30 while running 100LL just to be safe.

    Decalin RunUp and Oil Changes

    Thanks Roger. Everyone on here has been great. I'm going to buy a couple of Jerry Cans and just fill them up. There's no problem mixing 100LL with 91 unleaded correct (I read on here that it can contain up to 10% Ethanol and Rotax engines are ok with that)? Do I need to ground my plane when filling it up? I have to hangar at the FBO, I can probably fill it up out of sight somewhere else at the airport.

    Thanks Roger, the set I ordered comes with one of these. I appreciate it.

    Decalin RunUp and Oil Changes

    Totally agree with you. I have a budget set aside for all this maintenance. I was being a little cheeky with my comment, but it'll get done at 25 or there about.

    Hey Roger, didn't realize you made this reply. Which Dremel bit did you use... I'm buying a dremel just for this purpose. Thanks! Tom

    Thanks for the info, I'll pass that onto my A&P. Eventually I'll make it Exp and do the weekend course... just not there yet! Nice. I hope I got that batch of Rotax engines!

    Decalin RunUp and Oil Changes

    I bought Aeroshell Sport Plus 4 oil for my 2006 CTSW. I fly exclusively 100LL because I don't have a choice. Eventually I may create my own gas truck for Mogas. The recommendation is oil change every 25 hours. If I add Decalin, does that change the recommendation? Anyone with any problems using Decalin. Also, should I change my spark plugs with every oil change? Thank you.

    Old post, I know. Thanks for sharing it thought, it saved me a bunch of time.

    Wheel Fairings Weight

    Thank you. Will keep them.

    Wheel Fairings Weight

    Anyone know the weight of the wheel fairings on the CTSW? Any benefits to removing them? Thanks
  13. My CTSW only had 1 set of keys when I received it recently. Kraus & Naimer were not very helpful with key blanks. Online, the blanks run $10-20 each. I just wanted to let you all know that the Harley Davidson X94 key blank can be used to copy your Kraus & Naimer key. It cost me $8 for the whole thing at the local locksmith and I tried it on the aircraft and it works. Totally worth it.

    Door locking

    Thank you for your help Roger, Tom, and Ben. You all are great. Very interesting about tying it down and locking the doors. I'll have to try it without tying it down. Otherwise it's to the dremel!

    Door locking

    Hi everyone. Just got my 2006 CTSW and I have a stupid question... how do you lock the doors? Do you latch the doors closed and then lock it? Because I can turn the key but not the whole way so I can't get the key out. Do you push the doors in unlatched and then lock it? Because I can't do that either. On a different note. I'd like to get a spare set of tires... anyone know which to order or where I find out which I have? Thanks
