  • FUEL availability

    Specifically
    I am contemplating a trip south from East Scotland to the South Coast (Headcorn area) flying through Yorkshire and the Fens I would be grateful for any advice re fuel(MOGAS if poss) availability and suitable sites for an overnight stop.( particularly in the Lincolnshire area) More generally is there any register of microlight sites where fuel might be obtained or people who might cooperate given advance notice.( I would certainly reciprocate)

    FUEL availability

    Bert,

    Here are some good links for obtaining fuel availability and also fuel prices for 100LL and even MOGAS (Sywell sell Mogas as well )

    I prefer link 1 but some prefer link 2.... the choice is yours

    I gather you are a LOCAL to me.... I reside in Edinburgh and I am posting this as us Scotties need to stick together, but the English are allowed to use this data as well ( I am actually an English/Welshman residing in Edinburgh)

    Hope these links help you in finding your fuel stops, the only caveat emptor is: ANY AIRFIELD SOUTH OF FISHBURN get really funny about accepting JOCK NOTES (ESPECIALLY 100 NOTES)

    (SEEMS THEY HAVEN'T HEARD OF ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND PLC DOWN SOUTH)

      I should think that most microlight airfields will offer fuel. Just let them know when you phone for PPR. We're a friendly bunch!
