Re: What comes after a DA40?

Re: VM1000 fuel totalizer

Refueled today. As with Peter's experience the totalizer indicated a gallon less available then is probably there. Good to know.

Re: VM1000 fuel totalizer

Rich- I have the same problem as John. I've searched the internet for the VM1000 installation manual but have not found a copy. Can you post a link or just Section 2.6? Thanks. Bernie

Re: DA40 without vs with A/C - different checkout??

My Jet Shades contained some Velcro alternatives to the suction cups. After trying the dark front middle piece I went with the regular as well. I passed on the rear shades in the back.
