Jet Fuel in See-Thru Rotary Engine? Let's try it!

  • Published on: 24 June 2019
  • Thank you Matt from the Warped Perception YouTube Channel for loaning the rotary engine to me. Let's run the see-thru rotary (Wankel) engine on Jet Fuel. You can see what is inside of a rotary engine (Wankel) while it's running to see how Jet fuel burns compared to other types of fuel and compared to a piston engine. He did an amazing job designing and building this very durable rotary engine! Please check out his video on the rotary engine:

    We also tested Jet fuel in an electronic fuel injected generator, applying a load along with several other gasoline engines to compare performance. Hope you enjoy the video!

    Thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    Todd, don't hold back, blow it up! I'll just build another one. That was insane I think it looked better running on jet fuel than RC fuel. I wasn't sure what would happen, it does have a glow plug and not a spark plug but that was really cool to see it on your channel.

    Tulane is a university in Louisiana; Toluene is a flammable hydrocarbon. But I love your videos.

    Where do you get all these lawn mowers from? I hope you're not going around telling people their not worth repairing when clearly you're using them on hundreds of your videos.

    At the airport we used to regularly run our diesel generators on JetA fuel (kerosene).

    Isnt jet fuel kinda like diesel in the way it ignites

    I had a test done on a honda ct 90cc engine and it normally topped out around 80 kms but on av gas 1 it hit over the max speed limit at 110 km/ hour. Found out a few days later it blew the oil pan so just want to find out when sitting on 5 liter gas oil mix tank yeah a speed boost.

    Don t you think jet fuel could be more efficient at higer compression?since in a jet engine air is compressed prior to ignition. Edit:turbo engine is the way!!!

    Anything can run on jet fuel if it gets hot enough it makes more power and tworqe but it better be a beefy boi or boom

    I killed my moped back in the time with petrol/jetfuel. It was pinging like mad and dieseled without ignition.

    Jet fuel is just enriched diesel fuel. US Navy ships utilize F-76 (Diesel) as their primary fuel for the GE LM-2500 Main Gas Turbine engines and the various Gas Turbine Generators, the Allison 501-K series. These are essentially converted jet engines to turn a shaft and push a ship through water and generate electricity. As an alternate fuel source, these engines can also, and often do, run on JP-5.Because of the high viscosity of diesel, it is recommended not to run gasoline engines on diesel due to rapid carbon build up which ultimately leads to clogged fuel injectors, gummed up spark plugs, and it makes a mess of the combustion chamber. Because of the high octane in gasoline it is not recommended to run diesel engines on gasoline. Doing so leads to either non-ignition or premature ignition of the fuel and can cause pistons, wrist pins, and connecting rods to be destroyed, not to mention the damage to the electronics of the engine. However, in an emergency it can be done.

    Do you have to replace the head gasket every time you take off the head? Just curious.

    My 40-year-ago recollection is that O.S. (Japanese model engine producer) made a rotary engine for use in models...about 40 years ago. As a matter of fact, it's still listed on their web site at - but it's a discontinued product. Everything old is new again... :-)

    This is a great video! I was surprised at the jet fuel results in both the mower and generator. Jet fuel is supposedly the same fuel as kerosene and can be used in diesel engines. How many times have I heard that the gasoline engine wouldn't start because the idiot put diesel into the fuel tank? Great shot of the carburetor. Now I know not to give up the idea, just increase the percentage of gasoline in the tank. Compression is too low for the kerosene to reach auto ignition temperature so the spark plug initiates the burn. I think compression ratio was the problem with the micro Wankel engine when you switched it to Jet Fuel. It was fun hearing that thing get up to speed on the aviation fuel. That engine would rip as a gen set. Rolls Royce designed a Wankel to run on diesel. They used a two stage design to increase compression. It was so efficient they put the design on the shelf and forgot about it. Cheers!

    Exactly what type of “jet fuel” was used and where did it come from? Last time I checked, Jet A fuel was pretty similar to diesel.
