What is this "turn signal" you speak of?   It's not something those of us in the Northeast are familiar with....

Another plane stopping for fuel at the same location. This time from the pilots view point.

In Alaska Aircraft have the right of way on public hi ways.   There is lots of signage to remind the out of towners of that fact.

 ...... come to think on it ........ didn't BMW make aero engines in the past 80 or so years ?

I have seen it in print that the BMW logo is a 4 bladed prop spinning.

There isn't an additive to make it usable?

Since they had hoses long enough to reach and it appears to be a common plane stop, I'm thinkin' they've got AV gas.

From the second video, it looks like he just used regular 87 octane.

Wow, you'd think they'd at least use premium. I would be worried about water in the fuel. It's really hard to pull over up there if things go wonky.

No, it’s a separate tightly controlled refining process. Avgas is 100 Octane LL (low lead). 
 

Some engines can be converted to run on 87 octane auto gas, but don’t develop the power of the others.

AvGas typically goes through a fuel water separator before going into your tank.

 

A few aircraft manufacturers have certified their engines to operate on 87 octane unleaded auto fuel as long as it does not contain ethanol. Special additives are added to the oil and sometimes the fuel.
