Maintenance

Engine Log:

Our Engine Log is aimed at giving information to help with servicing and diagnostic data for when things go wrong.

We will record the date, the engine-hour meter and the activity description.

Routine inspections, the result of the inspection, and details of all maintenance done, problems encountered will be listed in the Log. When refuelling, the number of litres of fuel put in the tank will be entered, and fuel consumption since the last refuelling calculated. As well as keeping track of engine stuff, we will also log anything related to the starting system and transmission in here.

The engine log will be on the computer but during trips we will take notes in the Maintenance Note Book.

Maintenance Schedule:

Our Schedule has the following columns:
