    Trying to get the most speed out of my CTLSi

    My guess is at wide open, because your prop is too flat you are less than 92%, probably less than 90%. AT 70%throttle / 5,350 might be even less than 70%. Do you have a power / torque curve / graph?

    That 92% sounds mighty suspicious, do you have a power / tourque curve for the Si? You can leave your pitch where it is but if your tach isn't 5,500 and your throttle isn't wide open you'r not getting best speed. I have tundra gear and see TAS well above 120kts most of the time. Pulling back to the 5,3xx range would cost me 10kts at least.

    You are pulling back to what feels to you like 95% throttle but you are prolly down around 70% power judging by your speed. Two things will pick up a bunch of speed, 1) flatter pitch so you are 5,500 at your cruise altitude; 2)Cruise setting becomes max speed setting. Consider if you added two thousand feet at least to your cruise altitude, you speed would go up and your fuel burn down and noise will go down. Personally I don't think it makes much sense to optimize for max cruise speed at low altitude because its too noisy and not comfortable.

    Airplane Taxes

    Last year I told the county that their assessment was too high and they dropped it to my suggested value.

    No fuel crossfeed.

    When mine don't equalize in the hangar they always equalize as I begin taxi for takeoff.

    No fuel crossfeed.

    Mine equalize in my hangar most of the time but not all of the time. Mine equalize all the way to equal sometimes and sometimes just gets partially there.

    Grounding while fueling

    I use the exhaust for both grounding and bonding. Why is the exhaust a bad choice Al?
