    For the last couple of years I have read topics where the people from ADA, Ok were going to develop an alternate fuel, 100 octane and lead free.
    I didn't see much about it this year at Oshkosh, does anyone know of an update or did they finally give up this search.
    How about Shell or other sources?

    G100UL is what they called it, but it was pulled/eliminated from the competition a couple of years ago. I don't remember why, exactly... However, I think there's a lawsuit or something going on between the guys behind APS, which includes George Braly, the guy behind everything in Ada...
