    Default AVGAS prices in your area?

    Here in Homer it is $5.65 per gallon PLUS our local 7.5% sales tax ... so $6.07 per gallon...
    In Soldotna it is $5.18 today but they said it was going up another 79 cents in a short time.

    What is it running up around Anchorage, Birchwood and the Valley?

    By the way, diesel just cost me $4.50 a gallon locally...
    I heard banjo music play as I was pumping it...

    Wasilla today was 5.50 or something close to that.

    diesel is around 4.30

    I wonder what this will do to most of the bear hunters this year

    Let see if you have the Peterson STC for the O-470, autogas is avgas, do not know if the winter blends qualify though and I don't think ethanol blends are OK either...

    Ethanol blended gas is a great product........our taxes go to support it, our government mandates its use and then it will screw up all but the newest of engines in cars.......not to mention its affects on other small engines........ .

    I just thought the idea of buying avgas or even auto fuel at Costco for a airplane was kind of novel.......but maybe not in AK.

    Moreover it takes more energy to produce it then it provides. What a ignorant and selfserving Gov we have. It's broken and ruined if you guys haven't noticed. Needs to be revised bigtime.

    Paid 6.90 today at Bermuda dunes, California. 5.25 in Tucson.

    $6.61 at Merrill Field. As if the price to fill the 185 wasnt enough, I just bought a 500 gallon tank to install at the house. Its really going to hurt when I fill that thing.

    Back to Rocket ..... burned autogas with that STC from 91 to 2007, then I upgraded to the IO 470, only 100 LL .... paying the price for only 30 more ponys ..... still think it was worth it.

    I've been buying 100LL in Homer for $5.02, jerry cans and hauling it to the plane. On the field Smokey Bay is around $6.85. I guess that it cost $1.84 to haul it 2 mi's. Of course in Seldovia 87 car gas is $5.56 and diesel is $5.84.

    Is that before or after all the weird taxes that they add out at the bulk plant?

    ocn - I'm not gonna make that mistake. My 470 is perfect for me.

    So you HAVE TO burn 100LL in your IO 470. They were orig certified for 87-ictane fuel and that's what I use.
    so far so guit.

    Was considering going injection. If it means no Avgas no-way-jose'.
