Starting from cold is never been an issue, prime for 7-8 secs and away she goes, however, try and start her within an hour of shutdown and it’s totally hit and miss if she’s going to start before the battery bus voltage drops below what the Avidyne Entegra needs to function. I’ve tried the POH method and one suggested by a friend, and nothing works successfully every time. It’s quite embarrassing when you've pulled up on the pumps to refuel and then have to push her off to one side. Can anyone help???
