    I'm confused (whats new?) Both engines are running at the same time, and you go the same distance as on one engine just faster. Still looks like 15 mpg to me. Where am I missing it?:confused:

    pull back on the red one some, cp!

    but yeah, a 6 seat twin is going to guzzle the fuel. you can't match the mpg of an SUV until you get into the little experimental aircraft. every production aircraft is going to under-perform a pickup truck in MPG.

    ... but, you go over 200mph!

    OK, let's un-confuse ya.

    If ya go 235 miles in an hour and use 15 gal of 100 octane av gas for two engines, ya used 7.5 gal per hour, per engine. But ya got 15.67 miles per gallon of gas (burned thru two engines).

    Ya Got it now!!! I thought so!!:D
