Jet A

Post by Fortech1977 »

Has anyone ever burned Jet A1 in their kerosene appliances? Curious as I have stumbled upon a few gallons.

Thanks in advance

Short answer, yes. Its a desirable commodity for those that burn a lot of kero gpa.

It doesn't necessarily have Prist or another brand of de-icer in it. One needs to ask from the source of the fuel. Some smaller airports would more likely purchase jet fuel with it already added whereas larger facilities are more inclined to add it when refueling. If you don't know, I suggest you don't burn it anywhere near you. I was offered all I wanted, but it had the de-icer in it, so I only got one gallon and burned it in a wickie a distance away. Supposedly all brands of the de-icer's fumes are considered toxic. I'm not going to find out the hard way.

I've only burned jet fuel in my kero GPA's, except when I've run out and then used CF in kero GPA lanterns.

Flammable liquids, open flame, what could go wrong?

I've used a couple of gallons of it in my 639C.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on JetA. I have a small airport nearby and thought I would look into purchasing a gal. I wasn’t aware of the additives. Now, I know what to ask.
Thanks,

Just so you don't look odd when going to the airport, it's Jet A, not Jet A 1, that doesn't exist.

Correct! We have some heli activities at work and the tank is labelled "Jet A with FS II", which my Googlefu indicates means the de-icing agent is present.
