New autogas supplier for Virginia and North Carolina

Reflecting the increasing demand for lead-free autogas at GA airports, Jernigan Oil of Ahoskie, N.C., announced this week its willingness to deliver 93 AKI autogas to any airport in the states of North Carolina or Virginia.

Michael Harrell, owner of Jernigan Oil, explains: “I grew up in an aviation family. My father was a crop duster who operated from an airstrip at our home here in eastern North Carolina. I have flying experience, as do my two sons. I have always kept my own supply of ethanol-free fuel for my personal vehicles and power tools, and I deliver it to a number of gas stations and marinas in North Carolina and Virginia. The terminal where I purchase the fuel is confident that they’ll be able to supply me with 93 AKI ethanol-free in the future.”

Jernigan will soon be supplying the Currituck County Regional Airport (ONX) near the northern end of North Carolina’s beautiful  Outer Banks. Harrell says he’s happy to deliver loads as small as 1,000 gallons anywhere in North Carolina and Virginia.
