Maynard Stensrud, long-time owner of Stensrud Aviation and manager of the Waseca Municipal Airport (ACQ) in Waseca, Minn., reports that ethanol-free autogas is now available at his airport.
“We support quite a few pipeline patrol aircraft, and they save a great deal of money by burning autogas. At this time, 87 AKI ethanol-free autogas is what we are selling, which is what our customers want.”
Thanks to Maynard Stensrud, flying has just become quite a bit more affordable for pilots in south-central Minnesota. For a list of airports in the US offering ethanol-free, lead-free autogas, see this link.
The GAfuels Blog is written by two private pilots concerned about the future availability of fuels for piston-engine aircraft: Dean Billing, Sisters, Ore., an expert on autogas and ethanol, and Kent Misegades, Cary, N.C., an aerospace engineer, aviation sales rep for U-Fuel, and president of EAA1114.
