Is that a 180HP parallel valve engine or a 200HP angle valve engine? If a 200HP, that fuel flow seems too low. I'd like to see 18-19gph and full power full rich.

It is 180 HP IO-360-M1B constant speed hartzell. What is ideal fuel flow for that?

17gph sounds right. One thing to check. Does the flow reading change with the boost pump on? In The RV-10 with the stock setup, the boost pump shows a 2-3gph increase in fuel flow, but there is actually no increase. Verify this. If you are reading 17, but only getting 15, that is likely your problem...too lean.
