GUL: The future of fuels. Febru by Janice Wood. For the past couple of years, George Braly and Tim Roehl, owners of General Aviation Modifications Inc. (GAMI), have been thinking about the future of avgas. Now the two are creating the future, having recently filed a patent and STC for an unleaded octane avgas they call GUL.

The Future of General Aviation Fuels Currently the two principal types of fuel used in Aviation are Avgas LL and Jet A-1; Jet A-1 for turbine engines and Avgas for spark ignition piston engines. If you are a general aviation pilot, the one you are probably more familiar with is Avgas and it is this which we will concentrate on here.

Future fuel Unleaded alternatives. The “imminent” demise of leaded aviation fuel has been discussed, debated, and planned for more than 30 years; current efforts focus on ensuring that we will continue to have LL for the near future, while also implementing a program to transition the industry to an unleaded fuel with the least impact on the existing fleet.

Jet fuel, aviation turbine fuel (ATF), or avtur, is a type of aviation fuel designed for use in aircraft powered by gas-turbine is colorless to straw-colored in appearance. The most commonly used fuels for commercial aviation are Jet A and Jet A-1, which are produced to Appearance: Straw-colored liquid.Aviation fuels include both jet fuel for turbine engines and aviation gasoline for piston engines.

The dominant fuel is jet fuel originating from crude oil as it is used in all large aircraft. Jet fuel is almost exclusively extracted from the kerosene fraction of crude oil, which distills between the gasoline fraction and the diesel by:   Aviation experts are in wide agreement: Flying at supersonic speeds would slash flight times (imagine a hour trip from New York to Los Angeles or .
