Have you thought about trying EGJD ?

Don't bother. It doesn't exist. But isn't it bloody annoying having to look it up ?

FF, don't be too hard on Duchess Driver. After all, typing 'EGLD' saved him pressing two additional keys.

collective purchasing?

Or does that only work when the fuel is distributed to the same location? If we all part owned x company and all bought fuel through x company could we get a better rate because of the volume the company buys or would that only work if it was all delivered to the same place? Just a thought?

So is the price of 1.70 inc VAT at Blackbushe posted on the Hangar website malicious then? I can't see why no-one is interested in updating this. Maybe it's too open to abuse.

The Hangar fuel price comparison site is the only one running in the Uk at present as far as I know.With price variations of 20 pence or greater per litre fuelling at the best priced airfields can produce big savings.I urge all pilots keep that site updated.VBR Stampe

Actually Rob I am on the commitee which is why I originaly asked the question re, prices across the UK.

WLAC now have a new Airfield General Manager with a strong aviation background and has an aircraft and flies himself, unlike the previous Manager, that didn't know her Elevator from her Ailelron (HARSH BUT TRUE)

One cannot discuss the current pricing, without knowing what the competition is selling AVGAS for. So I would be obliged if PPruners could just answer the damn question and stop wandering of the subject.

I just need a list of all AVGAS pricing accross the UK by airfield inc VAT,

If some places like Eddsfield can sell it for 125/ltr inc, and its not like they are getting through tons of the stuff for discount purposes, then either they are using it as a loss leader, or the other airfields are just making extra profit form us But i can't see what Edd would be using it as a "leader" to? As he runs a nice friendly quiet strip with nothing to sell you! Therefore i would suggest the other places are just making as much as they can from a virtually captive audience! The only problem, as has been said, flying from WWaltham to Edds for some gas would be un-economically viable, although a good reason for a flight north for a change to the L2K run! Still aslong as you can get it for 1.25 then its only a couple of pence more than the car stuff, so not too bad all things considered.

It is still 1.10 / litre incl VAT at my club, 1.21 to non-members.

This will last until the next bulk delivery. The last time we filled the tank, in January (9000 litres), the cost to us was 1.08 / litre.

This gives you some indication of the profit some airfield operators are making.

I think a lot of the smaller fields are just selling existing stock purchased at lower prices.They may get a very nasty shock when next filling their tanks.For the consumer that method of working is great but just imagine if the price ever starts to drop (ever hopeful) these places with slow turnover could be left with very expensive stock.

Of course we are selling our existing stock cheap, as we sell it at cost plus a couple of pence, and we fully expect the price to be much higher when we bulk up next.

I think the price of AVGAS did dip a little bit last year, but did anybody pass that on at the pumps? No I don't think so.

I was paying in the '1.40ish' range throughout last year at other fields, and yet at the begining of this year the wholesale price was only 1.08.

Is 30-40 pence profit / litre reasonable?

EGLL 1.230? My arse.

Saw the published figure on PPRuNe - so I popped over to fill up.

I've never met such a rude and un-cooperative radio operator in my life. He'd clearly never heard of an overhead join, and my request for the location of the signal square (he wouldn't tell me the circuit direction) was met with a fit of coughing...and then a thud.

Decided to land long on the grass runway at the end of the (very long) southern taxi way, since I could see some tyre tracks there - looks like a heavy twin gouged some turf up recently - but the markings for the grass runways are frankly rubbish.

Was impressed by the numerous static exhibits of contemporary airliner technology at the new aviation museum they've built at the western end of the airfield - apparently they try and fly some of the exhibits at weekends, helped by a bunch of willing amateur volunteers, but I reckon they need a few professionals in there to run the place to make a going concern of it.

Anyway, finally found the Avgas bowser - had to taxi round for ages - odd to have the "follow me" truck do the following instead of being in the lead, and it had blue lights as opposed to the usual orange. Turns out they only do Avgas for PPR 30 years in advance, and the 1.23 rate is only applicable if you uplift 3000 litres or more. Bloody typical. Anyway, I put Ken's name & address on the form the re-fueller (funny looking hi-viz jacket - it was black, made of kevlar, with lots of pockets) made me sign (and since when do fuel handlers need guns? - Health & Safety gone mad) since it was his thread on the PPRuNe I was using as a reference for fuel availability.

Another fine mess he's got me into.

Can you fuel hedge avgas like Jet A-1? I know the buying is a lot lower than an airline but could you buy say 50000 litres and get a decent discount?

I think the important point with Avgas prices is they are very dynamic at present.On a list such as that above check the date of the price ,over2 months old is almost certainly invalid.Wholesale delivery prices are rising weekly if not daily.I ring ahead to establish fuel prices to deterrmine where I can fuel most cheaply ...a bit like the day job really.

Then would you care to tell is where that is - because it sure as hell isn't where your profile location is (1.492 inc VAT)
