Thank you for sharing your design, Peter. I'm a 750 Cruzer builder and have been agonizing over whether to include header tanks in my fuel system.

Initially, when I was leaning toward a fuel injected engine, it was an unquestionable "of course I will". But in recent months I am leaning very strongly toward a Jabiru 3300 Gen4 engine and consequently am rethinking whether or not I'll use a header tank. I share this with you because I had convinced myself IF I did, I would probably use two small 1 gallon tanks, one for each wing tank... and, here' you've planned your system with two header tanks as well. So I have to ask: what is the capacity of each tank you've planned to use? And, have you decided where you intend to put them in your aircraft?

Best regards.
