IndianOil - First in India to produce and market AVGAS 100 LL

avgasvideo.pngAviation Gasoline grade AVGAS 100 LL is designed for use in turbo-charged reciprocating piston engine aircraft, mainly used by FTOs (Flying Training Organisation) and defence forces for training pilots. AVGAS 100 LL, produced for the first time in India by IndianOil's flagship refinery at Vadodara, has been tested and certified by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the statutory body of the Government of India to regulate civil aviation in India. It is a higher-octane Aviation fuel meeting the product specifications with superior performance quality standards as compared to imported grades.

The indigenous availability of AVGAS 100 LL will help reduce dependence on imports and address the associated logistical challenges. The country will be able to save precious foreign exchange with the in-house availability of this product.


Before this launch, AVGAS 100 LL was a completely imported product. The domestic production of AVGAS 100 LL produced by IndianOil at its Gujarat Refinery will make flying training more affordable in India. This will also benefit more than 35 FTOs across India. Given India's continuously rising aviation traffic, the requirement for trained Pilots is expected to increase. With the domestic availability of this product, the Ministry of Civil Aviation is considering opening more training institutes in the country.
