Re: jet fuel

I know on my Deuce and a Half it lists Jet-A as a fuel that can be burned, but also shows a mixture of it and engine oil for lubricity I assume.

The Jet-A might not have enough lubricity for the diesel injection system without an additive.

That's a guess of mine based on the Milspec for running it in the army truck.

Re: jet fuel

We have a member that is just starting to do it on here. You'll have to mix it with 2 stroke oil though.
Don't go around telling everyone that you are running it either, somone may not like that too much.

Re: jet fuel

I have ran about 500-600 gallons of Jet-A in my truck. I was mixing Marvels in it for the longest time, but with the cost of Jet and marvels I was not saving to much. Then I started using 2-stroke and i made it alot cheaper. But now jet is alittle cheaper the #2. Jet-A is very dry compared to #2. In for 20 gallons i would add 12 oz of oil to it. Egts seemed to be a little higher but it may have been me looking to hard. The cool thing is the smell. Smelt like you were at an airport. Im getten nerivos with all the fuel issues. I dont want someone to dip the tank.

Re: jet fuel

The truck should run cooler on the Jet-A. It should also NOT smoke. Hence the reasons that you don't run #2 in a Gas turbine setup for Jet-A. It would roll coal and melt down..... but make a good bit of power.

Jet-A has less BTU per gallon IIRC. So with a constant injector capacity, the truck should make less power.

Re: jet fuel

Jet A is kerosene. You can burn it but your truck might not like it. Mine would rattle and cackle so bad I couldn't bring myself to burn it. And that was mixing 5 gal into a tank of #2. Doubt it would do any harm.

Jet B is cut with gasoline/naptha. It might really be hard on pumps and injectors.

Re: jet fuel

As Ryan stated, he was running Jet-A for a while. But what I would do if running it would be to actually double the 2 stroke oil. Mix it at 2oz/gallon and that would bring the HFRR rating within spec for our engines. Jet-A also is lower in BTU than #2 so you will lose a little MPG.
