    If you have an engine out the last thing you want to do is increase drag. You have to have the gear down that also creates drag. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    The tanks have a crossfeed on them so each engine is running off it’s own tank unless the crossfeed valve is opened. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just throwing this out there. 100LL has a circular nozzle. Jet fuel uses an oval shaped nozzle that is so wide you can’t stick it in the fuel inlet of an airplane requiring 100LL. It’s easier to put gas in a jet than the other way around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
