General Aviation Modifications Inc.’s (GAMI) George Braly announced in a seminar Wednesday at the Sun ’n Fun Aerospace Expo in Lakeland, Florida, 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, after testing the fuel received a certificate of authenticity (COA), which then makes it “commercially available.”

With the announcement, Braly and GAMI hope to counter critics that say while the fuel has received FAA approval for use under the STC process, it’s not commercially available. 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 available.
