Do they run on kerosene or JetA? When you run one of those bad boys do you have a small tanker truck near the dock? I'm being serious. My brother owns an excavation company and he bought a small used tanker for about 10K for watering down the dust. I don't remember seeing JetA at the docks. As others have said, this thread turned out to be pretty good.

you can run a combo of fuel, gerry has a tanker come out before we run and his is set up for kerosene these days. jay leno's turbine car uses old cooking oil I think ,I'll check I have it saved on dvr.

Interesting that they would put this little tid-bit under the outboard pic.....Special features of the outboard include infrared-resistant cowling to thwart enemy tracking. Ironically, the heat signature of the boat passengers registered higher than that of the outboard motor itself.
