Gas Stations Sued By State For Selling 100LL »

New Jersey's Attorney General (AG) and Division of Consumer Affairs (DCA) have filed a lawsuit regarding the distribution and sale of 100LL at six gas stations in the state, last December. The suit charges that the avgas was advertised as unleaded auto fuel and sold to customers between Dec. 6 and 8, 2012. According to the state AG, the gas stations "clearly knew, or should have known" that they were selling leaded avgas to motorists. A distributor and transporter were also named in the suit. Zephyr Oil is accused of purchasing more than 70,000 gallons of avgas on Dec. 4, 2012, from a California-based company (not named by the suit) and selling it at a deep-discount price to Pamsel Property Inc., which owned all six affected stations. For pilots, the lawsuit may pose more questions than it seeks to resolve. More
