Burping Oil Tank
I always burp before each first, and last flight of the day. The end of the day burp has not changed. Following a 10 minute rest after shutdown , typically 4 to 6 compressions will usually result in the burp. However, if I end up with a couple of weeks between flights and I check the dip stick first, I find it to be scarily low. and it will take closer to 30 plus compassions before getting the burp. I always do very slow pulls, with a hesitation at the compression point. So my question is, does this sound normal, and what has your experience been? I look forward to you comments. Thanks, Tom
