Introduction to Shell Aviation Fuels
Introducing Shell Aviation Fuels
Shell Aviation fuels may be classified into three basic groups:
- Aviation gasoline - for use in reciprocating or piston engines
- Aviation turbine fuels (jet fuels) - for use in turbo-fan, turbo-jet and turbo prop engines
- Power boost fluids
All Shell Aviation fuels are produced to stringent manufacturing specifications. At every stage between refinery and aircraft tank, sampling and laboratory analysis check fuel quality. This ensures that the fuel conforms to the requirements specified for the grade when it is delivered to the aircraft. The Shell Aviation Quality Control System is organised on a worldwide basis. The Shell Aviation service is provided directly in many countries of the world, a representation matched by no other supplier of aviation fuel. This makes quality control much easier to achieve in comparison to other suppliers.
