I have seen prices for 110 Avgas, that are resonable.
Have any of you run it ? And if so how difficult was it to purchase, will the airports sell it to you ?
Thanks !!!

if you plan on running strait avgas in a racing enging.....DONT.......spend the money and run racing fuel. it has toulyline(sp) solvent and burns colder and slower. avgas is made for running at different altitudes, it burns hot for race engines. if you have a 10:1 or less engine you could probably run half avgas and half super, but i would run atleast half racing fuel and super. you are better off to spend the money on some racing fuel, your engine will thank you in the long run.

ok thanks for the info. I guess the issue is the cost at the moment we are swithcing over from alky, and yes I know you use half as much gas but so far race fuel in our area is going for 6 bucks a gallon, which seems high and this is for Sunoco 110.

This is why I was looking at the Avgas
