Fuel Question

Sun Apr 28, 2002 2:17 pm

Can anyone tell me if GA pilots or any other companies owning jets can get fuel at a lesser price than it is. How much is aviation fuel anyway(all types).

Out of 3912 FBO and other fuel selling locations across the USA reporting prices, the average, min, and max price for fuel is:

100LL: $2.42 / $1.60 / $5.25
Jet A: $2.30 / $1.05 / $4.50
80/87: $2.42 / $1.23 / $3.34

Average price data is 77 days old.

Hope that helps, sorry I don't really know anything about the pre-final sale prices of oil. I do know that my FBO gets 100LL for ~$1.30/gal though.

Most FBO's (Fixed Base Operators) will give fuel discounts if you purchase a certain amount of fuel like over 500 gallons. Also there are discounts if you are a member of Civil Air Patrol, or hangar a plane there. The prices at my local FBO are, as of April 26, 2002 $2.77USD per US Gallon for 100 Octane Low Lead and $2.40USD per US Gallon for Jet A.

Hope this helps.

First off never get truck fuel, they price is instantly $2+. Always get self serve, I have found that most of the time at reasonable prices around $1.79/gal.

If you are a member of AOPA and charge it to the AOPA card you can get a 5% rebate.

Oh if you are in South Florida, the cheapest place that I have found is the airport at the Big O, $1.75 for self serve, and you don't have to spend 45 mins on the ground trying to get it.
At worst, you screw up and die.
