<< Right. I've got an FGE. I know the sump for the retract is a little
different. Perhaps they would be able to recover a little more fuel.
The ram air idea has me interested. I could do the math, but someone
here probably knows: How much PSI is required to raise a fuel column
one foot? Would ram air from the outboard end of the strake be sufficient
to evacuate the sump tank while in flight? >>
We used to have a water column device that was home built for testing low
pressure applications of a machine we were developing for coal pumping. The
top of an 8 foot colunm was approx. equal to 6psi. I could find out the proper
numbers but I din't think that will be needed as 1 foot of water will be less
than 1 psi.
Hope this helps,
