### How many gallons of fuel does a Piper 140 use?

Pilots count on burning about 9 GPH at 75 percent, 7 to 8 GPH at 65 percent. The speed mods described on page 30 may considerably improve speed and economy. The 140 has a fuel capacity of 50 gallons. Piper wisely installed tabs in the tank filler necks which indicate 36 gallons, making precise partial fueling easy.

### How many gallons of fuel does a Jeep Cherokee 140 hold?

In fact, the standard fuel capacity was listed at 36 gallons, with 50 gallons optional-presumably to discourage overloading. Piper obviously thought through many features on the Cherokee 140 but this yielded a mixed bag, in our estimation.

**Is the Cherokee 140 easy to fly?**

Compared to a Cessna 172, I found the Cherokee 140 to be easy to fly and easier to handle on the ground. I purchased the airplane from an A&P and part of the agreement was that he would install speed mods from Laminar Flow and Knots-2-U. These modifications increased the cruise from 112 knots to 120 knots at 8000 feet at 8 GPH and 2620 RPM.
