welcome to turbines

i dont know about the deodoriser, but i know you wont be able to get rid of the fuel, you can only pump out the main tanks and half of the header tank, i would not advise draining it down the UAT or you will have to prime the fuel system everytime before you fly.

In reading past threads a few cut a tennis ball in half and placed over the exhaust outlets, again it is not something i have tried.

I have got used to the smell when i keep mine indoors. but mainly as you know mine stays away from the house.

Yep, cover the exhausts and the smell reduces quite a bit. Never goes completely though. Might be worth putting something over the tank vents too, just don't forget to remove it before flight!

...you'll always have the "eau de kero" smell lingering around to some extent...

I've used the B&Q greenhouse parafin before - its low (or reduced) odour, but it still contains naptha which is the ingredient that gives the characterist smell.....besides it was around £5.00 for 4L so I only used the one container before moving onto central heating oil (SEC28 Kerosene) which is about 1/3rd of the price.

...plugging the exhausts will help reduce, but not eliminate the odour....

...if you can, learn to love it !

thanks guys for the advice i will try what you say i think the fuel in it at the moment is actual jet A but i will use parasene from homebase if the smell gets the better of me it looks like it will have to live at my mums in her shed, good old mums hey !
also on the B & Q website it says they are selling parasene for £2.49 for 4 ltrs

best regards

Or you can do as I did. Just inhale a deep breath every evening and soon you will get accustomed to the smell

Serious now: I did blind the tank vents - and it helped quite a lot. I just used Festo fittings on the ends of the vents and put a fuel line between them. I actually helped reduce the smell, and before each flying session i just remove the fittings before fueling.

Good luck - and keep us posted if you find a solution.
Tried planks, but after all, wood is best on the bonfire.

The way
...I use a large translucent poly bag to cover the entire ship within, and wrap the ends airtight...

Eliminates it completely, now hermetic...
