mwjohn63, are you the guy that took me to see your 12 at your house a couple of years ago when I was getting my annual done by Mark at Lebanon? I was the guy that won the RV-12 at Oshkosh in 2017.

Default Flo-Fast Fuel Tank

Get a 15 gallon Flo-Fast fuel tank with crank pump on the top. Put it on a wheeled base (check Harbor freight) and keep in the hangar. Use jerry cans to fill it through a Mr. Funnel. That will maximize your use of premium mogas. Don't worry about the ethanol with this arrangement, the Rotax doesn't care nor do any of the RV12 fuel system components.

You only get the shorter oil change times if you use more than about 30% 100LL. I never worry about using 100LL on a cross country. If there is mogas convenient along the route - great - but I would never worry about trying to make special arrangements.

Default so you're The Guy !

(Lucky Aviation) that won the RV-12 at Oshkosh in 2017.
I was a student at the EAA Sport Pilot Academy in Sept 2017. Every day we'd go to the Jack Mark hangar at KOSH for training (ground school & flying C162 Skycatchers). What eventually became your plane was sitting in the hangar and I spent some time in it making believe that I was going to win it.
After graduating I realized that renting an LSA wasn't going to work out so I had to build (and now fly) an RV12 ... what a thrill
That sure had to be quite an experience to get The Call that you'd won.

It was an experience of a lifetime, that's for sure!
I am getting farther on my RV8 build currently and will be faced with selling the 12 soon.
It sure is a load of fun to fly!
