AVGAS

Aviation gasoline—a fuel used for piston engines. The fuel grade is indicated by two numbers. The first number gives the knock rating for weak-mixture conditions, and the second figure is for rich-mixture conditions. Presently, only two grades of fuel are generally available—100/130 and 115/145.
