The UK Civil Aviation Authority has just released new consolidated advice for owners of light aircraft clarifying the options as to which fuel they may use
including mogas (motor gasoline) from a garage forecourt, if it is approved for their particular aircraft. The guidance is published as a webpage.
The advice states that any type of fuel may be used in an aircraft providing it meets the specification set out in the aircraft’s approval documents and any operational limitations. The guidance also details the responsibilities of aircraft and airfield operators in storing fuel and ensuring it is of the correct specification.
The CAA says this advice ‘is the latest move in its aim to be dedicated to effective regulation that supports and encourages a dynamic GA sector that imposes the minimum necessary burden and empowers individuals to make responsible decisions to secure acceptable safety outcomes’.
