Shell Announces Lead Free Option to 100LL Avgas

Shell_Aviation_Lab_2As you are probably aware, the 100LL issue has been plaguing the general aviation industry for years. With the threat of additional EPA regulations on the horizon this product couldn’t come fast enough.

Shell’s new lead-free formulation comes after 10 years of exhaustive R&D, as well as successful initial testing, carried out in the last two months by two original equipment manufacturers.
