The Swedish Government has assigned to the Swedish Transport Agency to investigare the conditions for an introduction of a Swedish environmental class for unleaded aviation gasoline.
An environmental classification of aviation gasoline opens up for a possibility to have different energy- and carbondioxide-taxes between gasoline tailored for road purposes and gasoline specifically tailored for use in aircraft.
Aviation Gasoline is currently in Sweden and the EU taxed the same regardless of its environmental qualities such as with or without lead, contents of biomaterial etc. .

The order is signed by the Swedish Minister of Environment, the Hon. Mr. Andreas Carlgren.
