Possible Chevron/World Fuel Service Fuel Contamination at Truckee (KTRK)

After a fatal accident at Truckee (KTRK) on the 2nd of August, the industry-standard practice of halting fuel service and testing the fuel in all tanks and trucks revealed that the 100LL fuel stored at KTRK did not meet the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards for 100LL.  As a result of these tests, 100LL fuel service at the airport continues to be suspended pending new fuel and testing of its quality.

 Truckee Airport has been trying to get in touch with all pilots who purchased fuel between July 20th (the last fuel delivery) and August 2nd (the day of the accident) and have asked us to pass along this information to pilots at San Carlos/Half Moon Bay.  Questions about the above-mentioned issue should be directed to World Fuel Service’s area representative Mike Montalvo at: 510-604-6511.
