Whatever could be the reasons pro-Avgas, keep in mind that the phase out of LL100 has been postponed again and again; that after decades of research no 100-Octane no-lead gasoline has been developed at a reasonable cost; that damages caused by lead in fuel are better and better known; and that most piston-engined planes on the US register are over 35 years old in average and fly less than 50 hours/year. However I will be happy to publish your arguments on www.dieselair.com

Those 30year plus old planes work perfectly here in AK and they are expensive enough, last thing we need is MORE EXPENSIVE Modern planes that dont even have the abilities we need here. Ask those who bought planes with the Thielert Diesel engines! Ask them how they like the 300 hour inspections, the ReductionGearbox failures, the operating costs, the whole mess! Guess why the are now making That twin with IO360 Lyc's instead of the Diesels! I have not Yet seen a VIABLE Diesel engine Thats available! And I had such hope with Zoche, Deltahawk etc etc
-anyway, more later!
