    Must be an expensive trip. Anyone know what kind of MPG such a plane gets?

    I was able to locate this info from Mooney:
    The Mooney M20K, both the "231" and the later "252" model, are probably the most efficient production aircraft ever made. The Mooney is capable of over 20 miles-per-gallon (8.5 km/L or 11.75L per 100km).
    Brian stated he was using about 7.7 gph

    Tnx, some info from Google put it at about that number.

    Not knowing what I am doing (normal) I come up with a trip gas cost of $6-10k.
