I know a guy who work's at a small local airport. I asked him

if I could get some fuel thinking it was good high octane gas. He

told me that the fuel was Regular not unleaded. My ? is what is

the difference. I'm young and barley remember the Regular or

Unleaded day's.<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/happy.gif ALT=":D"> There was also Jet Fuel. He said it was basically

Kerosene. I'm a bit confused about the difference's.

The jet fuel or kerosene that you call it has been around for a long time. It is basically low quality paraffin with additives to prevent icing at high altitudes and lubricity additives for internal fuel pumps.

Do NOT under any circumstances be tempted to put this in your bike! It will screw up your engine and injectors! I know of older cars that use petrol initially,to warm the engine up then, switch to kerosene and save tons of money. Fine if it is and old car but, definately not for a high performance engine!!

Avoid leaded as this will damage your cat in the long term and we are talking money there! (providing that it is still fitted)!! Just my 2 pence worth!
