GAfuels blogger Kent Misegades will present a talk “Aviation Fuel Club and Sport Fuel” at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh on Wednesday, July 27, in the Forum Pavilion 01 Pacific Coast Avionics. The presentation will include an update on efforts to find alternatives to leaded avgas, and progress made in the past year on expanding the use of lead-free, ethanol-free autogas at airports across the country. Misegades will provide guidelines to pilots, FBOs and airport managers on how to locate suppliers of aviation-quality autogas and low-cost fuel storage solutions.
