Posted:i was just wondering if it was a misconception that jet fuel is like the best stuff for a fire. like it will give you the best burn. actually jp-5 (jet fuel) is sooo hard to ignite. i get drenched in it regularly and then go and have a smoke. it is next to impossible to light...is there maybe some other aviation fuel that i am not aware of that is gods gift to the pyromaniac? besides embiber beads?

anyone got a light?

Posted:Actually Cantus, gasolene, white gas, naptha (sp??) and butane all have relatively low flash points. Kept in a warm garage they will burst into flames, especially if kept in a pressurized container (such as a butane canister)

....it ain't pretty. Shrapnel and flamey bits everywhere. It's why proper fuel storage is soooooo important and why the heavy duty plastic containers are best.Cheers.As for sniffing fuel..well...yeah...I did some fire breathing last night...it was inevitable!

Posted:Which is what I tried to say before Pele came along and started whittering on about petrol and butane.....It has to have a high flash point or aircraft ( I missed out that word last time maybe that's what confused her

Posted:you can make your own napalm from gasoline and gelatine. It's kinda fun. Highly lethal.I should think that jp-5 would burn just as effeciently as other fuels. You'd have to keep an eye on your wicks tho.As with all of these things the only way to know for sure is to try it. Better still find some other fool to try it.....------------------C@ntus

Posted:The reason aviation fuel is so tricky to light is that it's basically refined diesel and therefore needs some measure of compression along with a decent heat source to ignite.That's all, thanks for listening!------------------We are all of us in the gutter but some of us are looking up at the stars."

Posted:I know the feeling of getting soaked with jet fuel (aircraft mechanic) Jet fuel isn't that much different from kero except the fact that there are alot more additives to keep it from gelling at 30,000' in the wingtanks. And there are some additives to keep microbial growth to a minimum in the tanks. Hence the really smelly and smokey burn characteristics

I create, I destroy... who said you can't have the best of both worlds!
