Piper Archer flies to Oshkosh on 93 octane fuel

07/30/2013 | AviationWeek.com

Piper Aircraft teamed up with Phoenix-based Airworthy AutoGas to fly an airplane on unleaded gasoline to Oshkosh, Wis., from Vero Beach, Fla. For the flight, Piper used a single 180-hp Lycoming O-360-A4M engine that can burn either 100LL or a specially-formulated unleaded fuel. "As we search for more environmentally friendly fuels than 100LL to power piston aircraft, Piper wanted to take the next step with Lycoming and Airworthy AutoGas to operationally prove the 93UL concept under rigid test conditions from Vero Beach," said Piper CEO Simon Caldecott.
