For what use? I Buy high octance race car fuel from a local speed shop.

Aviation gasolines are leaded and not taxed as road fuels, either of which make them illegal for use on public highways. Aircraft engines are also essentially low engine speed, constant throttle applications that must work well at very low atmospheric pressure and temperature. Aviation gasolines are blended to work well only under these very specific circumstances, and do not perform as well under high rpm and high load applications.

Went to a Goverment auction today at the US DSCC and bought a aircraft start cart. It has a small gas trubine in it as a motor to pover the gen. and compressor. I have evil plans for that little engine

Any GA (general aviation) Airport will fuel it. Your a customer like pulling into a gas station. I fill mine there all the time. It has to be on the airport gorunds. I take the Cat (actually I store it there in a hanger).

PM me and let me know where you are at and I will find the closest airport with Jet fuel for you. In Fl they have a tanker service that comes right to your house or dock.

Any class B or C airports are out. Like COLUMBUS, Miami, Atlanta, Fort Myers International. You have to go where the private guys go.

I paid 3.80 the other day.

Isn't JP1 more like kero,diesel,or #2 fuel oil, than gasoline?? Not that a turbine can't run on gas.

JP is just filtered Diesel/Kerosene with some modifiers. In your app you can run Kero or diesel with no problem-depending on what you bolt it to
