Mr Robinson quotes a fuel burn rate of between 7 and 10 gallons per hour (most instructors I have come across have suggested 8 per hour is about average), and the two tanks combined can hold 29.7 gallons. I think 7 per hour is a bit optimistic as this would give over 4 hours flight time, and I would say 3 is about as many as you'll get, in my experience (not that I've ever let it get low enough to find out mind you). What does everybody else use as a fuel burn rate?
Last time I did an hour's flight I actually dipped it before and after the flight to see what it did consume and I noticed that it did use around about 8 gallons.
