I hope they were wrong about the fuel because if so, that stigma will be with him for the rest of his life.
never trust your fuel gauges. calculate the fuel burn by time in the air and always land with 1 hr remaining. if I remember correctly, this is taught in basic pilot training course 101.
RV-9A, Tip-up, Superior O-320, roller lifters, 160HP, WW 200RV, dual impulse slick mags, oil pressure = 65 psi, EGT = 1300F, flight hours = 900+ for all

I was born an airplane nut. I have no explanation for it.
