I can't find where this thread started, but re: the weight of Swift fuel: Thank you for your interest in Swift's 100SF avgas replacement. My name is PJ Catania, and I am the Formulation and Certification Lead for the fuels department here at Swift. To answer your question, the weight of Swift Fuel is about 6.68 lb/gallon, which is just about a half pound heavier than 100LL. Most pilots do their flight plan using 6 lb/gallon for avgas, but most of the time it ends up being closer to 6.25 lb/gallon.

If you have any other questions, feel free to email me back directly.

Thanks again for your interest,
