U-Fuel, a supplier of fuel stations to the aviation industry and sponsor of the Aviation Fuel Club, debuted its first “Sport Fuel” station at the China International General Aviation Convention (CIGAC) last week.
First announced in the spring of this year, U-Fuel’s Sport Fuel system is a self-service aviation fuel station that places all critical components and the fuel tank within a strong steel enclosure. Pre-engineered and pre-fabricated, the system can be trucked to an airport and installed within a few hours, company officials said.
“Our new Sport Fuel station is the result of a two-year effort to develop a lower-cost, pre-fabricated, self-service fuel station to better serve the requirements of general aviation,” said Kent Misegades, aviation sales representative. “Many airports need to upgrade antiquated — and in many instances unsafe — fuel systems, but they are short on funds. In other cases, they are preparing for a future that will include autogas and possibly 94UL as additional fuels for piston-engine aircraft.”
