A report about fuel consumption of the Sinus

Hi Folks,
after almost 100 hours with a brand new Sinus I am very impressed
by the low fuel consumption of the Rotax 912.
I carefully measure the amount of fuel I add, once in a while I drain the fuel
from the wings and I come up with these numbers:

Table of consumption: AVERAGE LITERS PER HOUR, REGULAR UNLEADED MOGAS.

HOURS AVERAGE L/h NOTES
11.00 8.64 MOSTLY DUAL, HEAVY CREW, HIGH SPEED
17.60 8.01 MOSTLY DUAL
24.40 7.89 /
15.70 7.32 MOSTLY SOLO
04.60 7.17 MOSTLY SOLO, LIGHTER CREW, SLOWER SPEED

I did expect to burn 10 liters an hour.
If this trend continues I will be flying for free...
I used to pay 50.00 Canadian dollars a tow, now with that amount I can fly 6 hours engine on.
The Sinus is a truly ecological wonder!

Happy Flights,Dan
