One Response to Lead and AvGas in Santa Monica and Beyond

    I advise everyone reading this not to be selfish, but to think of the aircraft owners. The cost to redo the engines in these small aircraft is very high, and aviation fuel with lead creates a tiny amount of lead in a gigantic atmosphere. It is a very different situation than the ground-level use of lead in automobile and truck fuels, something which was a major problem.
