A little while agowe discussed AVGAS (Post 31155). Have just finished telephone call with Warakurna RH. ULP now not available there - AVGAS is however. ULP now only available Yalara and Tjukayiria RH (794kms my figure). Apparently the perceived wisdom is that coktailing AVGAS with ULP in tank is the way to go. I would be interested to read of anybody bold enough to try this whilst in transit.

Mike,
did gunbarrel last july in a petrol 80 series. Had to take on avgas at Giles and at Warburton. Ran a 50/50 avgas /ulp mix . truck ran like a dream , no noticable difference in normal temp range. fuel economy unchanged.
in fact I was that impressed I carried last 20 litre jerry can home to give the system a bit of a flush out as i think it may have cleaned up the injectors a bit.
Truck has done 20,000km since with no ill effects .
I would have no hesitation using the mix again.
safe touring
Howard

I take it the availability of ULP at other places in the top end may also be a problem. Is there a good resource to find out where ULP is/isn't available?

Cheers,


Stuart

Lyds aka Stuart?
I think the best rsource is here. From a chat with Michelle I understand this is a WA trial only. (AVGAS is illegal in Eastern states I believe). Solution for us is probaly to keep trek notes up to date and refreshed as we find out info.

Hi guys,
I believe that ULP has been banned on the Great Central Road ONLY.

I gather this was because of problems with people sniffing ULP, whereas diesel and AvGas is not giving people the same high, so they dont try to pinch it from servo's or cars.

From all accounts this is working so i would imagine it will continue indefinately.Looking for a holiday in the beautiful South West (WA)? visit www.whalerscove.net
