If injected you should take your plane up
and try a 50 degree lean of peak to see how your
injectors are and here is how to do it with a G2, G3
You will know the order of the lean, temperature

You should be under .5 gallons from first to last to
All of this will be on your G Series screen

First push of SEL knob you can adjust EGT bar height
on G2-G3-G4 Single and G4 Twin.
Turn SEL knob to adjust height (This should be
preset at Insight)

Some valve related engine faults produce a slow periodic
variation in EGT.
The oscillation rate is on the order of one cycle every minute
or two. This is just too slow to be identified by occasional
observation of the temperatures alone. Yet it is very important
to discover this phenomenon because it may lead to a
catastrophic engine failure. It readily appears in a slow
sampled spectrum analysis.
Temperature samples are collected once per second for each
cylinder and analyzed each second. The entire sample interval is
about 8 minutes. A normal indication will be a flat line with a
little noise, while a trouble indication will show as an obvious
