Baron mixture

Is mixture broken on the Baron?

The position of the mixture control has no efffect on power or fuel flow, except at full cut-off.


You are correct as of the 1.8.3 patch. Previously, in 1.7.14 or whatever we had at the beginning of this week, mixture at least affected fuel consumption, but now it does not. Nor does it seem possible any longer get fuel consumption below 15 gph/engine. Previously, you could do that.

So flood Zendesk with complaints. And also mention that there’s no EGT indicator, which is the key reference to adjusting mixture in the Baron (20^ either side of peak EGT is what the POH calls for).
