The difference in pump prices between North America and Europe is almost entirely due to much higher taxes in Europe.

I doubt the story because the wholesale price is just a few cents cheaper. Some private pilots have their own tanks because some airplanes can legally and safely run on car gas, but only if it's ethanol free, instead of the much more expensive leaded avgas. I've never heard of then being hassled for buying wholesale (though the EPA is another matter if the tanks are too large.)
