John,
Your fuel burn sounds about right.

I have extended tanks one bay and get 52gal max. My airfoil has a smaller
radius and more gentle ramp back however.
I figure 2galls unusable but it is a bit less.
I would suggest you level the aircraft, get some tanks and carefully measure
exactly how much goes in and disconnect your fuel line and carefully measure
how much comes out. I actually had to do this to calibrate my electronic
fuel gauges and about as much fun as pro-sealing the tanks.

Vapor lock.....The only trouble I had was in the summer in Phoenix or Palm
Desert while ideling waiting for my clearance. I have had trouble with the
push-pull cables seizing up when hot - prior to installing them in
firesleave.

Oil Temp? Get the largest cooler you can find/afford!

Good Luck!
Rob
