Useless airplane. With full fuel, which is what, about 28 gallons; you
have a payload of less than 150 pounds.

26 gallons. Full fuel gives you much more than 150 lbs. Empty weights
of around 1000 and a gross of 1500 gives you two FAA standard people
and full fuel.

I'm still waiting to meet an FAA standard person over about 35.

Gross on the 150 is 1600 pounds, but empty weight is 1060 with the O-200. Add
some radios and an Imron paint job, and we're over 1100. Stick an O-320 in it
and you've just added about 100 pounds to the empty weight.

Not in the 150/150. That could be a great plane but desperately needs a
gross weight increase.
