MOGAS availability, alcohol
Author Last Post
K34 Gardner KS Auto $2.25, 100LL $3.86
just SW of Kansas City
Best LIttle Airport In Kansas!!
 
I found a good website that I used on a recent VT- NM- VT trip. It's www.chouby.com/apps/autogas.html Start with the big map, then click on an airport to get the mogas price and phone number. Definitely call ahead to check availability, but this saved me hundreds of $ on this trip alone. Best stops were McPherson KS and Iola KS- gas was $2.35 and $2.45.
 
I know in Eastern Canada the only mogas available with no alcohol would be the Shell Ultra Gold 94.
Dont trust any other fuel in your aircraft.
 
Lebanon state airport in Lebanon,Oregon has Mogas at there self serve 24 hour pumps. RJB
 
Thanks for that link. I knew about Arlington (KAWO) in my
state (Washington) but I didn't know that Prosser had Mogas
(been there numerous times....).

Another site you can use to look for Mogas along your planned route of flight is:

I've used this page before for planning MOGAS trips:
http://www.navzilla.com/mogas.php

The info is based on FAA data (same as airnav) which can be out-of-date. I also make it a habit to call ahead to any airport that only has a single source/pump/truck to make sure they've got fuel and the pump is working.
 
Does anyone have a good source for finding auto fuel when planning long cross countries? I used to use fillupflyer.com but they went out of business. Also, what's a good way to make sure that auto fuel from a distributor has no alcohol in it? I get 87 unleaded delivered to my 275 gallon tank by a local distributor, and I've asked them to notify me before delivery if they're going to start having fuel with alcohol added, but they said they wouldn't know for sure. I understand that in some areas all auto fuel will have alcohol added after a certain date, and also that some states require a different (cleaner burning) fuel in the summertime. I use the EAA test kit periodically on the fuel from my big tank and so far it's good, but I don't want to accidentally put any alcohol in the skywagon. My MOGAS STC prohibits it, and I understand that the alcohol erodes the rubber seals in the fuel system. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Wily
