I will add more stuff as I look through my logs more thoroughly.
I've maintained this aircraft as well as I can and flown it as gently as I can. I generally fly at 50-55% power (18-20"mp and 2150-2200rpm). I My fuel burn is consistently 10GPH overall and 9 in cruise, (as verified with fuel log since rebuild). This equates to 105-120 KTAS dependent on OAT, altitude and load. You can cruise at 130k.
The only other individual who has flown this aircraft since my purchase is my son, a Naval Aviator (we could certainly entertain the wisdom of that decision, as I am Air Force) and in my lap, my grandkids.
I don't use it for training and do not pull the power to idle except during pre take off check and touch down. That includes Biannual flight reviews.
I taxi at about 1200rpm, surface allowing. Tough on brakes, ($20 per set) but much better for plugs ($20 EACHx12) and to provide for adequate CHTs and EGTs to minimize lead deposits on cylinders walls, valves and plugs.
I try to keep temperature shocks as low as possible (0-2degrees C per minute) and reduce power no more than 2" at a time. Picky, yeah.
I've always tried to fly it at least once a week. Not always possible.
Battery on charger when not flown regularly (batteries are expensive)
I always preheat (as much as 24 hours if below freezing) before starting below 50F.
