After scouring through countless web sites looking for good solid information on gasoline, so far the most informative ones I found were from Chevron, RFF, UFA, some shops like AA1car.com and Wayne's Garage, E15 tests, and the News. The aviation is a great resource but it can get complicated awfully fast. These guys and gals refer to our pump gas as AutoGas or MoGas. In short it is the least reliable source of gasoline when compared to AvGas, and this view is shared among owners of airplanes and by Chevron a Tier 1 gasoline company. Understandably the folks up in the air are not interested in rolling the dice with fuel quality.
Changes in Gasoline IV is a document that took me by surprise as I had finally hit the jackpot. Written by RFF (Renewable Fuels Foundation) in 2009, it provides and depth look into gasoline changes, quality, and storage. It appears to be complete and accurate, and exceptionally well written. It has a small section on sleds and the information is spot on. Here is a passage from the last page.
Changes in Gasoline IV was prepared specifically to provide information about spark ignition fuel quality to automotive service professionals, instructors, and automotive students, as well as the small engine service technician. It is based on a review of over 150 reference documents and was reviewed by a technical panel to ensure technical accuracy. In addition, an advisory board provided review and input to help focus the manual on issues of key interest to the auto service/repair industry.
