What kind of carb is it? How hard would it be to put fuel injection on it? Im not A&P so I probably shouldn't touch one of those carbs.
I have check into fuel injection and it would take 4 weeks plus to put on. I wish I could just have someone put in on for me but must A&P do not want to mess with it. I would think it would be easyier just to us my carb. I thought I had someone that could help me out and I talked to him and sent him my carb numbers but have not heard back from him

Alaska doesn't have ethanol added to any gas. 100LL was at $5.25 at the bulk distributor in Anchorage last week. CNN has a story running today the the Lundberg Survey indicates gas prices have likely peaked already. I know that doesn't apply to avgas but doubling up on current prices seems very unlikely.
Judging by traffic it doesn't seem that high fuel prices have changed our use of cars or planes. Air taxi and air guide prices may slow down their traffic, though. Guys I know aren't seeing much of a decline in bookings yet. Go figure. Fishing charter guides may not be so lucky.

Obormot, is that Brazil or over where you live? Good video. A guy over on Supercub just announced today that one of his pilots has a father that works for a big oil company. He says 100LL will be $10 a gallon by the end of the summer. If that happens some of the guys will quit flying instead of adapt.
That's going to make food and supplies very expensive in places like inland Alaska where everything is flown in.
