  • Fuel tank cover chafing

    While doing my condition inspection this year I found and slight evidence of a fuel tank strap chafing on the fuel tank cover. I applied a strip of teflon chafe tape to protect the area. Just an FYI of something you may want to inspect. I don’t usually pull a tank cover during my annual.

    Did you also tighten the tank straps? How loose were they. The tank straps should "creep" over time. How many hours?

      Roughly 150 hrs. Tank straps are still tight so no adjustment was made at this time. I will probably make this an item for inspection at condition inspection every other year.
