Hey guys, I'd like to test a new cruise setup to try to save some fuel. I have been flying at 23/23 at about 130 mph. What I wanted to do was pull the power back to 2500 and then use the prop to pull it down to 2400 which is about 20 inches of manifold pressure at about 120 mph. Do you think this setup would hurt anything on the 0540 or do you know of a better setup to save on fuel?
Thanks, Lamar
