Jet fuel

Does anyone know about jet fuel? I'm a aircraft mechanic and have lots of jet fuel around that I can get for free. I heard it is "dryer" than diesel which means it doesn't lube as well but was wondering how it would do in my truck. Any info will help. Thanks.

I have heard of some running JP8 in their trucks. I am not sure of the sulfur content of it or the lubricity, but I have heard of some running it. Educate yourself before you put it in the tank. Read up on those two parts of the fuel, if the sulfur is above 15PPM and the lubricity content is the same or higher than #2 ULSD then you might be able to run it.

it probably wouldnt hurt to toss in a quart or two of 2 stroke oil or ND30 to add a little bit more lube to it

Send a sample to Blackstone Labs and also some #2. Then when you get your comparison sheets back verify it's attributes. This should tell you if the flash point and such are the same.

I will have to do some research. I was talking to a company in Ontario that is putting diesels in planes now and they run a Dodge pump and have had no problems.

I have heard of at least a few using sample & drain off fuel in there diesels. One of my friends dumps it in his older Chevy. You could add some bawls or whatever for lube. I don't suppose Canada has went to ultra low. That even seems to make my motor run louder so I add some lube additive.
