Long Range Fuel
Author Last Post
I have had the old style Monarch aux tanks with the transfer pumps since 1995 in my 1958 180A with 65gal main tanks. They add 36gal usable fuel and I have nothing but good things to say about them. I have flown 7 hour legs with good reserve. The best thing I like about the Monarchs is they are inside of the strut attach points so there is no cantilevered, outboard loads bending on the wings.
 
I have the Flint tanks...very happy with them so far. I had them installed
by someone who had done many of these, so there were no surprises.

Flint Aero has integral tanks (not tips) which add 23 gal useable; about $5K
for the hardware. They don't require the wing skins to be taken off, but
it'd probably be easier that way.

You might look into Monarch plastic tanks, either larger-than-stock replacements or aux.

Is it possible to install long range fuel bladders in a wing that presently has standard fuel?  I'm re building the wings and thought I would install if the bay's were the same.  Not interested in Flint tips 
 
thanks
