  • Change to BP Avgas

    18 May, 2016

    Dear Valued Customer,

    This communication is to reiterate the change in supply of Avgas from Air BP for Avgas 100 (green) to Avgas 100LL (blue).  You may have noticed a visual change in colour of the Avgas supplied as of late 2015, for all into plane/self-service and bulk Avgas.

    1.  What is the difference between the Avgas supplied previously and the Avgas supplied now? 

    In the past BP Kwinana Refinery has manufactured Avgas 100 (green) which has a maximum lead specification of .085 gPb/l.  Over the last 12 months the lead content of Avgas supplied from Kwinana Refinery has reduced and has been below the maximum lead specification (0.56gPb/l) of Avgas 100LL since October 2014.
    Avgas supplied going forward will be blue in colour and will conform to the Avgas 100LL specifications of Defense Standard 91-90.  While the initial change takes place the product supplied may be transitional mixture of green/blue and then will change to blue.  This change will occur once per site and in accordance with the supply pattern to each site.

    2.  What is the colour change and why has there been one?

    The Avgas colour will change from green to blue and signifies a change from the Avgas 100 specification to that of Avgas 100LL specification.

    3.  Will there be a change in performance?

    No, the Avgas will continue to meet the same MON and Supercharger engine requirements of 100/130.  The only difference in the product is the colour and the amount of lead present.  Both grades are manufactured and conform to all the requirements of Defense Standard 91-90.

    4.  What affect does this change in colour have on aircraft?

    The change of colour will have no effect on aircraft.  Colour is not a property that affects aircraft performance; it is simply used as an indicator to distinguish between different grades and types of fuel.

    Air BP expects that the transitional change to blue Avgas should be completed by the end of 2016.  If you have any concerns regarding the affect this change will have on your aircraft or aircraft parts please contact your aircraft/parts manufacturer supplier.

    There is no action required by you and you can continue to fly with the peace of mind that Air BP's products are of the highest quality and specifications.
