    The reason for the N number requirement according to the fuel jockey is that some people have been using Avgas in their hot rods and the FED wants to make sure road use taxes are paid if the fuel is used on the highway... I'm all for preventing terrorism but downeast is correct I'm not going to register my saws as aircraft so I can buy a little gas... ;-) A friend of mine buys his for antique tractor pulls to get a little more umph from his 50 horse farmall.. Pulls his tractor right on the tarmac (actually one runway airport) and gasses up. You won't see that at O'Hare Intl.!

    Wow! I really hit the jackpot on my first post! I really am not an airport expert I just enjoy being outdoors and cuttin wood. :)

    The last canful that I bought from this little airport I had a eye opening conversation with the attendant/fuel jockey/ chief bottle washer about why I "won't" be able to buy my fuel there anymore. I don't recall the entire conversation (It's been a couple of years) but both homeand security regs. were discussed (Although he didn't give me specifics) but, taxes were the main issue. I could still get some if I need it but for me the PITA value was too high.

    Anyway back to Dolmar 5100s... After splitting a little firewood this eve. That lightweight saw has got me intrigued :)

    I don't know how taxes are applied in the US of A but here there are different taxes for different things. We even get to pay tax on tax. It is not beyond the realm of possibility that gas sold for cars have a different tax load from avgas.

    Anyway... since I don't drive my chainsaw, my splitter, my tractor, my tiller, etc., on the roads, I shouldn't have to pay the excise (road) tax.
