Thread: jet fuel

    jet fuel

    can anyone tell me what the highest octane I can burn in a 215hp RXP I usually burn non-oxinated 92 but was wondering what if any benefit I would see mixing in some jet fuel or racing fuel?

    jet fuel is the same as kerosine, avgas is like petrol/gas but burns slower

    Unless you are running high boost, lots of added timing or high compressio, there would be no benefit and will actualy lose power.

    Exactly...... octane is simply resistance to detonation/pre ignition, it burns slower than lower octane fuel, if you dont require high octane fuel for your application then running it will only hinder performance.

    If you were running at the ragged edge of an acceptable air/fuel ratio and you knew the weather was going to be exceptionally hot and you were going to be riding hard then running some race fuel might not be a bad idea. Or if you were tuned specifically for race gas due to a high compression/high boost set up.

    your right winter...
    jet fuel is just a little more refined then diesel fuel... dont think that would be a good idea... maybe a little cam2 would be okay though.
