ASTM D is the major specification covering Aviation Gasoline. and it is anticipated that the Grade 91 will now be removed from ASTM D freeing up. This standard is issued under the fixed designation D; the . last published in Specification D–94 in the Annual Book of ASTM. ASTM D Standard Specification for Leaded Aviation Gasolines.

Retrieved 12 December Retrieved from ” https: Propeller governor Propeller speed reduction unit Spinner. In MayTCM indicated that despite industry skepticism, wstm are proceeding with 94UL and that certification is expected in mid From The Ground Up Millennium ed. Archived from the original on 25 June Archived from the original on 2 August Asgm from the original on 12 March Some certificated reciprocating-engine aircraft still require leaded fuels, but some do not, and some can burn unleaded gasoline if a special oil additive is used.

Some oxygenates other than ethanol are approved.

Meanwhile, Teledyne Continental Motors indicates in document XR3 most recently revised in that leaded avgas is required in their engines: Do not wash down spills with water. The Lycoming position is supported by aircraft type clubs representing owners of aircraft that would be unable to run on xstm octane fuel.

Direct conversions to run on automotive fuel are fairly common and applied via the supplemental type certificate STC process. Retrieved 29 July In Europeavgas remains the most common piston-engine fuel. Fuel dyes aid ground crew and pilots in identifying and distinguishing the fuel grades [12] and most are specified by ASTM D or other standards. Astmm EPA’s own studies d91 shown that to prevent a measurable decrease in IQ for children deemed most vulnerable, the standard needs to be set much lower, to 0.


There are other classification systems for military turbine fuel and diesel fuel.

One gram of TEL contains Archived from the original on 20 May Phase one testing is performed at the William J. It does not include all gasolines satisfactory for reciprocating aviation engines.

Some refineries also use reformate. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Despite assertions in the media that leaded avgas will be eliminated in the USA by at the latest date, the EPA confirmed in July that there is no phase-out date and that setting one would be an FAA responsibility as the EPA has no authority over avgas.

This product should not be used for purposes other than its intended use.

SuperCharge Octane Testing for Aviation Fuels

Vapor lock typically occurs in fuel systems where a mechanically-driven fuel pump mounted on the engine draws fuel from a tank mounted lower than the pump. Lycoming believes the industry should be pursuing UL instead. The gasoline shall adhere to octane rating requirements specified for individual grades, as follows: While lead concentrations in the air have declined, scientific studies have demonstrated that children’s neurological development is harmed by much lower levels of lead exposure than previously understood.

Avgas is occasionally used in amateur auto racing cars as its octane rating is higher than automotive gasoline thus allowing the engines to run at higher compression ratios.


SuperCharge Octane Testing for Aviation Fuels

Prevent all spills from reaching water. This does not constitute an insurmountable obstacle, but merely requires examination of the fuel system, ensuring adequate shielding from high temperatures and maintaining sufficient pressure in the fuel lines.

Need help or have a d9100 The high octane ratings were traditionally achieved by the addition of tetraethylleada highly toxic substance that was phased out of automotive use in most countries in the late 20th century. The new fuel is slightly ast dense than LL, but has a 3.

Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. The FAA administrator stated that regulating lead in avgas is an EPA responsibility, resulting in widespread criticism of both organizations for causing confusion and delaying solutions.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency EPA has noted that exposure to even very low levels of lead contamination has been conclusively linked to loss of IQ in children’s brain function tests, thus providing a high degree of motivation to eliminate lead and its compounds from the environment. Unleaded avgas is also available. Is It for Real?

Maybe 94 Unleaded Fuel Will Fly”.
