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

  • 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.

    Advancing or retarding the cam timeing (depending on fireing type) in this case youd need to take some timing out of it. Try retarding a tooth at a time with a hotter plug, it'll take that ping out an should be able to fine tune it to equal the way it runs on gasoline, or pretty close. This would've been a really good test on a diesel engine though!

    i what one of those small rotary motors

    Makes sense there is a loss of power because JP-8 is basically "thin" diesel. i wonder how your engines would hold up to Avgas

    the green mower is from 2001 i saw the date code the first two numbers are the year only on briggs and stratton engine

    The numbers for the composition of the jet fuel don't add up. It should be 92-100% kerosene.

    Try the opposite. Running a plane engine with gasoline and bacon grease

    Bacon grease and kerosene! Mmmmm.....especially on toast. ;p

    You should try running a gas engine with grain alcohol!!!

    i think it may have been running rich i personally run jet fuel in my race car and its advertised as 110 so maybe the engine didnt have enough spark to ignite the fuel just a thought but great vid keep up the work

    Did anyone else imagine putting jet fuel in a mower ,starting it and flying away on it like a helicopter? Lol. Is jet fuel the same as blue gas ? And are they both the same as the general aviation fuel?...if that is even how that works . lol idk.

    I got an idea since I bet you have the budget for it. You could buy a Mazda RX-7 Engine, it's a rotary, and you wouldn't have to worry about breaking it.

    Would be interesting to see how engines would run on 91% Isopropyl alcohol. I’ve ran out of gas before nowhere near a gas station, but managed to get some 91% isopropyl from a local store to get my EFI car back to a gas station about 15 miles away. It ran and idled fine, just felt a little down on power.

    After watching 5 hours of your glorious videos I go to my car and get nervous when starting it as if I'd been testing it for random fuels haha.

    you should have your friend build a small turbine engine and then put the jet fuel through the turbine engine

    How about you use different types of Avgas on your next experiment? 🙂

    It may seem a little strange to you , but i have been dealing and studied and researched wit the rotary engine for long time.No i have my version of rotary engine which i think is kind of rotary engine upgrade.The prototype i designed is not big , about like the one where you poured jet fuel .So if you want , i can and want to send you the appropriate e - mail drawings so you can make , test and compare with a classic Wankel - rotary engine.I have no conditions for that right to tell you , i live in building , no workshop , i'm just an engineer .

    wouldn’t the engines run faster if you adjusted timing and fuel to air mixtures. idk if thats how it actually works just seems like the buggy wasn’t getting all it could out of the jet fuel

    Jet fuel is alternative fuel for Diesel engine .

    Detonation was too fast with the glow plugs.

    I would like to see you try a mixture of fuels together like gas and jet fuel.

    JP8 is hard to light on fire😅 we used to put our cigarette butts out in it on base

    See if you can get a “liquid piston” rotary. It’s a daft name as the rotor is metal. It has three combustion chambers around a rounded triangle case. Rotor is egg shape.

    Jet fuel burns slower than gasoline so more heat goes down exhaust. Low compression engines will work on low spec fuels. High compression more efficient but needs a fuel that won’t pre-ignite. Ping/knock.

    It look like it ran more efficient. The fuel spray into the carbie seemed like it was less
