Re: Burning Kerosene
Yes, but the Navy, and only the Navy, uses a jet fuel referred to as JP-5. This is a special blend Kerosene and has been used extensively in all diesel engine boats, tow tractors etc for many years now. Burns ok, but does not quite have the lubricity of Diesel fuel, however it does have more than regular Kerosene. I haven't heard of many injector issues, but there was concern at one time that injectors may experience excessive wear [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img] JP-5 is different than Jet A and JP-8 which are part gasoline base. JP-5 ain't cheap and I don't think you'll find it on the open market.
