Gulf announces new unleaded gasoline at AirVenture 2017 with U-Fuel and American Legend
Gulf Racing Fuels introduces the newest, high performance unleaded gasoline for engines manufactured by Rotax, Continental, Lycoming and Titan. The announcement comes midway through the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Airventure 2017. Gulf Aero 93 Unleaded will be the first of many new unleaded gasoline offerings that can be used in spark ignited engines made by Rotax, Lycoming, Continental and Titan. Gulf will provide the fuel in factory-sealed steel containers of 5 and 54 gallons.
The new unleaded gasoline is made without any oxygenates or alcohol like ethanol which is a benefit to the engine owners who have been unable to find consistent sources for ethanol-free unleaded gasoline. The fuel will be available in the United States. The gasoline is typically referred to as Autogas or MOGAS and will meet the needs of spark-ignited engines designed for unleaded gasoline. The Aero 93 will have anti-knock index (AKI) of 93, minimum. The fuel will not have a dye marker but will be clear to yellow depending on the production location.
