The beginning of the end of avgas

The EPA in the USA has issued an ANPRM concerning the lead in avgas. For now there's no deadline for the elimination, but there's no doubt that it's on the way out, and if it's elmininated from the US, by far the largest market, I have no doubt that it will disappear from the rest of the world too.

The EPA has recognised that it will need to work together with the FAA to overcome the significant logistical and technical challenge and already the pilot and industry organisations have joined in agreeing to work together on devloping an alternative.
