Avgas Fuel and Fuel Grades
Avgas (aviation gasoline) is a fuel for piston engine powered aircraft commonly used by private pilots and flight schools. In part due to low volume requirements globally, only two Avgas grades – 100 and 100LL (low lead) – are typically used in the modern general aviation community.
- Avgas 100: The standard high octane fuel for aviation piston engines. Characterized by its high lead content and green color.
- Avgas 100LL: Avgas 100LL is dyed blue and subject to the same specifications as Avgas 100, however its lead content is lower.
Aviation Fuel Categories
Aviation fuel encompasses a range of specialized petroleum-based fuels containing additives used specifically for aircraft. Aviation fuel typically falls into two categories: Aviation turbine fuels (jet fuels) for turbine engines and aviation gasoline (avgas) for internal combustion engines. Aviation fuels are required to meet strict manufacturing requirements put forth in relevant specifications. Fuel is sampled and tested at multiple production stages to ensure conformity.
