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.

    The spark time and fuel intake was not good enough timed

    I really thought that kerosene would only ignite with a diesel engine. Jet fuel is surprising! :-P

    Gasoline volatility = 14psiJet fuel (Jet A) = .125 psiJet B = 2-3 psiThe higher the number, the more easily the fuel vaporizes.

    I wonder how jet fuel does with a small diesel engine. Sounds like their properties are very similar

    Jet fuel is more akin to diesel a more similar comparison would be 100LL

    I'm curious to see how Jet B would perform.

    Imagine dudes rolling up to a car meet saying I run on jet fuel ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ like thatโ€™s great but it still runs the same๐Ÿ˜‚

  • CleanMotorSport RacingAssociation

    My motor wonโ€™t even see it coming ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ because I ainโ€™t putting jet fuel in my car ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I love this channel, but obviously that was not "jet" fuel, small piston powered planes run on a fuel similar to gasoline, true jet fuel will not even ignite through a carburated or a fuel injected engine because it will only burn as a mist

    Since you are working with aviation fluids, since I am an aircraft mechanic, I think it would be interesting to see a project using aviation hydraulic fluids as engine lubricants. The two most common are Skydrol (a fluid spawned by the devil) and MIL 5606.

    Some people I used to work with once tried to light some aviation fuel left in a small fuel tanker trailer we were transporting for a friend of my dads with a cigarette lighter, it actually wouldn't set alight with a naked flame.

    What about helicopter fuel? The light blue color fuel from helicopters (i believe it is a very high octane gasoline) ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    When you added the jet fuel to your buggy and noticed it 'pinging' , you should have changed the ign. timing. Would of seen alot more speed /power.

    Add a turbo and all that unburnt fuel will really spool it up and create massive BOOST!!

    Could you test antifreeze? There are some types (colors). Or windshield fluid (winters ones on different temperatures) :)

    If there was a safe way to do this test on nitromethane, it would probably be very entertaining. I have to admit, a law mower on race fuel would be pretty awesome. I totally understand if it is not possible due to safety.

    conclusion: run your car on jet fuel unless it's a predator atv

    Make an engine run on a particulate dust / fine powder. I've seen Hay dust explode in a barn, happens with grain and corn too. All kinds of fine particles will flash burn and even explode.
