Re: Cessna 205

I have a 205 and love it. Does everything I wanted it for. Hauls bunchs and is very good on fuel. Fairly fast but if Fast is my main concern I will take my comanche!

Thanks, Henning. This one has the IO-470.

The 205 is really attractive to me because of the 6 seats and what appears to be a fairly simple airplane. I don't need any screaming performance, just a good load hauler to carry the family. Seems to be a 182, just bigger, and I like flying the 182.

I am curious about mogas though, looking at the future of 100LL. Anyone know whether the IO-470 will run on it?

I have been told that my 260hp IO 470 in the 310 application will go direct 94UL no worries if they cut lead dead tomorrow.

Per the Petersen Aviation website, the only IO-470 variants approved for the mogas STC are the IO-470-J and K, the 225-hp versions found in 33-series Debonairs and Bonanzas. The 260 hp version as in the C-205 is not on the list.

Re: Cessna 205

Also, unfortunately, the C-205 (or C-210-5 as it is also known) is not on the list of airframes approved for the mogas STC.

Re: Cessna 205

I have talked to Petersons about this and they said they have to test the airplane with mogas and they don't do all of them because of lack of demand. Also I have heard the I0-470 S has higher compression than the other lower powered ones. Some of the later 205's had the next series 470 that can have a 2000 tbo on them. You can really lean them down. I was out other day and was doing 110-120mph on 8 gals. Wasn't in any hurry to get anywhere. I have to flog my 172 to go that fast!

Re: Cessna 205

Before buying my C205, I spoke w/Petersen re: their IO-470 STC. IIRC; it
requires water injection. Ugh.

Also; the C205 (nee: 210-5) is not on the AML for the STC.
