This forum is for anything to do with light aviation
Many thanks Hogster
I have forgotten who you are - can't keep track of forum nicknames
I've updated my TB20 writeup, under "Unleaded Fuel?"
http://www.peter2000.co.uk/aviation/tb2 ... index.html
This is a very welcome development.
I wonder what the storage life of this new stuff is?
I am thinking of not only bowsers but also fuel supplied in drums, which quite a lot of people do in the more southern parts of Europe.
This link show my aircraft engine fuel requirement as 80. Does that mean 91 UL is OK? (O-320-E2A)
Sorry for the thick question!
From the Total Web site;
Avgas unleaded UL91 – NEW !!! UL91 is an unleaded Avgas which is specifically designed for the Ultralight aircraft. It is manufactured by AIR TOTAL and endorsed by Rotax. It can replace Avgas 100LL in a growing number of engine / aircraft combinations http://www.caa.co.uk/. It can also be used in place of mogas (forecourt petrol) which is not an approved Air Total aviation fuel.
On the airfield UL91 complements Avgas 100LL which is still required by some high powered piston engines.
Total are apparently very pleased with the number of airfields taking 91UL. By the end of Feb it is expected to be up to 15. I have asked for a list and will add it when it appears.
