NO ETHNOL ALLOWED in aviation fuel!

In fact a few years ago it was common to obtain an STC which is basically a legal modification, allowing legal use of auto gas (called mogas in the aircraft world) in some smaller general aviation engines. When the ethanol fuel came along this lost popularity since it became a hassle to find fuel free of ethanol.

As a result we are currently paying about $4.50 to $5.25 for 100LL. There is talk of eliminating 100LL. If that happens I am not sure what the result will be for general aviation.
