Engine Run In

I am currently running in my new engine. I talked to Horizon and they said
it would take about fifteen tanks to get it run in. I currently have ten
through it and that represents about 3/4 of a gallon of fuel. This would
put fifteen at just over a gallon. Does this sound like enough or should I
run more fuel through it?

I wouldn't think you've got much to worry about now Doug. Time to get on
with the flying and forget the engine nursing:-)

Depends on the engine Doug,

But you're definitley over the
"critical phase". As Beav said
keep it rich and and go fly it.
