I've been told the engine likes full throttle over part throttle, but this seems counter-intuitive to me.


Anywhere from 2500 to full throttle. The back of your owners manual gives
you the RPM vs altitude information. Use it and you'll be fine, and meet
book values.

When I had my 150, for trips I would push the throttle all the way in on
takeoff, and never touch it until I had the landing runway in sight. With
wheelpants it would do 100 knots on a good day.
