On the last flights I had problems with the fuel flow indication of my Hoskings FT-101. It jumps around and shows totally wrong values. Fuel flow is (and should be) around 10 USG in CRZ but the indication shows more than 20 USG. This means that also the fuel totalizer is wrong and I have only the unreliable factory gauges for fuel levels.

In several forums they describe cleaning the fuel flow transducer with carburator cleaner and this is what I will try. Does anyone have experiences with that?

Also: Hoskins does not seem to be supported any more. Other fuel flow transducers seems to have different K-factors and it seems not the easiest task to calibrate them to the Hoskins (although there is PIN programming possible). Maybe someone has a working Hoskins transducer for sale? They are supposed to last around 1.500 hours or so (we are at 1.700 now), but people state that cleaning gives them another 1.000 hrs.

Quick update from N252CG: we removed the fuel flow transducer and cleaned it with carburator cleaner and brake cleaning fluid. Thereafter re-installation in the fuel feed line. Last six hours of operation were back to normal :) Will keep you posted if anything bad happens again.
"Thank you" to Mr Schiedek-Jacht who offered us a new Hoskins FT transducer from an EDM installation. It might not be necessary now but we might buy it as a spare anyway.
