Installation of an auto fuel STC is an uncomplicated procedure for most aircraft with a gravity feed fuel system (no fuel pumps). No major modifications are needed. We provide you with the paperwork and placards required by the FAA/EASA to make it all legal. A certified mechanic must "install" the STC by adding the new fuel placards and an engine placard and updating the aircraft administration.
In some Piper airframes equipped with suction lift fuel systems (pump fed systems), different electric fuel pumps may need to be installed to insure adequate fuel flow, and/or the fuel pump locations must be moved. The STC for the PA-28-160, -161, -180, -181 requires the removal of the factory installed electric pump. This pump is replaced with two completely different pumps and a revised fuel system forward of the firewall. We have a complete STC kit available. Installation of these kit takes about 1,5 day.
