I was trying to get some numbers ($$$) in order to determine if it would be convenient to fly a C172 or a C182 for a total trip of 960 kilometers / 600 miles rather by car.
Since I wasn't able to find any web page where I could get some information about Cessna's single engine consumptions, I was forced to ask you guys some information and some advice (if available ). But before we start, here I'll give you some numbers regarding fuel costs over here in Argentina:
Car: ( I have a Diesel one )
$ 1.2 per Liter / $ 4.5 per Gallon.
Max range with a full 60 Liters / 16 Gallons tank:
-900 kilometers / 560 miles at 60 mph / 100 kmph.
-750 kilometers / 470 miles at 100 mph / 160 kmph.
As far as I know about small Turboprops fuel costs:
Near $ 1 per Liter / $ 3.7 per Gallon.
Now here comes the question: Anyone here knows the consumption of a C172 or a C182 in order to determine costs, performance, Pros and Cons for this trip ?.
Thank you in advance.
