    Have you installed Monarch fuel caps on a wet wing installation and found aircraft fuel capacity decreased?

    I have Monarch caps on my T210. While the quantity I can get in it is not decreased, it is much more difficult to get full tanks than other T210s I’ve flown with the Cessna caps. While I have no real complaints about them otherwise, I ordered the Cessna kit and am swapping them out due to that fact. Unless I fill the tanks myself, most line personnel don’t have the patience/desire to spend the extra time it takes to get completely full (slow filling the last few gallons while fighting the spring loaded flapper).

    That’s odd… on the Cardinal, Monarch caps increase capacity a couple gallons per side.
