Provo Airport prepares to add self-service fuel

PROVO (AP) — Pilots flying private aircraft into Provo Airport could be pumping their own fuel.

The airport plans to add self-service fuel, which can cost up to a dollar less than full-service. Currently the airport offers only full-service refueling, which is available on-call after regular business hours.

"It's cheaper to fuel your own plane," airport manager Steve Gleason said. "For your cross-country pilot flying a single-engine plane, self-serve is nice to have."

The Provo Municipal Council recently amended the city code to comply with Federal Aviation Administration regulations for self-service fuel pumps.
