GAMI Says It Has 1 million Gallons of “Conforming” G100UL


General Aviation Modifications, Incorporated’s George Braly announced in a seminar today that Vitol (a commodities trading company) has brewed 1 million gallons of GAMI’s G100UL, 100-octane unleaded aviation fuel, stored in a tank at its Baton Rouge plant. More importantly, according to Braly, the fuel, after testing, received a COA, a certificate of authenticity, which then makes it “commercially viable.” With this announcement, Braly and GAMI hope to counter the critics that say while the fuel has received FAA approval for use under the STC process, it’s not commercially viable. The term is important because of a consent decree taken in California that could force the changeover to an unleaded fuel when an alternative to 100LL becomes “commercially viable”
