    I’d like to know more about why it’s “taboo” to install the fuel transducer directly after the gascolator. I have seen a couple of photos of brand new cub restorations that have the CGR-30P and have the transducer installed this way. I had planned to do mine that way too. Is the concern for stress on the AN fitting or is it a fuel flow reading issue?

    Here is how Cub Crafters did it on Top Cub serial number 2. I usually have equal length hoses and the elbow at the carburetor was loose.

    Sounds as if your “K Factor” may not be correct for the transducer you have installed. Check it in the settings. Just had the same issue on an RV-10 and changing that value corrected it.

    I agree. Fly with a full tank/tanks, refill when you land reprogram the K factor only takes a few seconds once you look up how to do it. DENNY

    Re read the set up instructions for the fuel flow circuit. It explains the verification procedures and how to correct the K factor setting.
