This will sound like a dumb question but where do you get your Jet A1 fuel from?

around whee i live (NJ) jet-a is tough to get, the airports i have tried are a pain in the ass ....

I use kerosene instead, A friend gets it for me from a hardware store in 5 gal buckets (it smells the least and is very clean) you can also get it at the pump at many gas stations ....

i'd suggest to stay with the kerosene, it works just as well, with less of a hassle ..

I used to work for a company that pumped 6 billion (with a b) gallons of Jet A annually. Jet A is simply the commodity name for kerosene. Same cracking, same cetane rating, same stuff.

Even the Material Data Safety Sheets for Jet A say "Ingredients: Kerosene 100%".

Yes thanks although JetA is filtered and does not have waxing properties. (Becomes a solid at very cold temperatures)

Jet A is Kerison base fuel, jet A1 is the same as A with a aditive so it needs to be colder befor it will start to gel up, Jet B is a Kerosean and gasoline base fule,
