    Not to take away from the thread, but thinking about usable fuel. My sport holds 30gal a side. 3gal not usable each tank. I burn about 8.5gph, plan for 10gpm.

    I was told the unusable was usable as long as you maintain straight and level flight. It's not usable in steep turns.

    Read the report again. It clearly distinguishes between what the pilot reported and what was observed. It does not say that the right prop was feathered, it says the pilot reported the right prop was feathered. I'm guessing the pilot took a pretty big hit to the head, and was not considered reliable:
