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.

    All that wrench turning has built you some serious forearms. Nurses have many veins to choose when taking your blood 😂

    I would have thought a gas engine would not even run on diesel/kerosene because of low compression. It's not flammable, it's combustible so the spark should not do anything unless combining the weak compression with the spark is what causes it to ignite.

    Isn't jet fuel just kerosene?

    What if you attached one engine directly to another instead of using a cylinder head?The number of video ideas I've given you is probably a huge list in itself.

    Probably not... HOLY COW IT DOES!The fact is that jet fuel is quite low grade as jet engines can run off of anything that burns. Propellant chemists even went as far as using turpentine and WD-40. For more information I would recommend reading Ignition by John D Clark. It’s a complete history of his time working with liquid fuels with a comedic twist on the whole thing. 10/10

    Can you run oxygen gas from a welding bottle directly into the air intake of the mower and see what difference it makes?

    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

    Imagine dudes rolling up to a car meet saying I run on jet fuel 😂😂😂 like that’s great but it still runs the same😂

    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.
