Aviation gasoline is our specialty!
Sergeant Oil & Gas, a Texas based company that has been in business since 1976, is an unbranded dealer for Phillips 66 Company selling aviation gasoline (100LL) internationally. The specs are ASTM D910. We load Isotainers (~6,000 gallons) Exworks at the ITC terminal on the Houston Ship Channel (Gulf Coast) and also sell in bulk quantities (minimum 3,000 barrels). The minimum quantity we load is one (1) Isotainer. Most of our clients handle the Isotank leasing and transportation themselves and we assist with their shipper/freight forwarder. Finally, we file federal excise tax refunds for our clients on a quarterly basis for a nominal fee for transactions involving Isotainers (no fet is paid on bulk shipments).
Aviation gasoline (known commonly as “avgas”) and jet fuel are types of petroleum-based fuel used to power airplanes and other crafts. Piston-engine general aviation aircraft use aviation gasoline because it is generally of a higher quality than fuels used in less critical applications such as heating or road transport, and often contains additives to reduce the risk of icing or explosion due to high temperatures, amongst other properties. Aviation gasoline is sold in much lower volumes, but to many more individual aircraft, whereas jet fuel is sold in high volumes to large aircraft operated typically by airlines, military and large corporate aircraft. Aviation gasoline has a low flashpoint which therefore is very dangerous and can easily catch fire. Avgas must be handled with special care and transported in special containers when shipped. Sergeant focuses exclusively on aviation gasoline and this is the only product we sell at this time.
Avgas 100LL is one of four grades of avgas and is used primarily as fuel for piston-powered craft because it has a low flash point so as to improve its ignition characteristics. Avgas 100LL is a high octane gasoline which allows a powerful piston engine to burn its fuel efficiently, a quality called "anti-knock" because the engine does not misfire, or "knock." The suffix LL (which stands for “Low Lead”) describes a grade containing lower tetraethyl lead than a second grade of identical lean and rich mixture ratings. Avgas 100LL is a liquid, is blue in appearance (color) and has a specific gravity of 0.68-0.74 @ 60ºF (15.6ºC). Sergeant only sells Avgas 100LL that meets or exceeds the ASTM D910-02 standards globally. Sergeant is a direct distributor of Avgas 100LL from Phillips 66 Company and therefore buyers avoid layers of middlemen.
