Jet Fuel A1

Jet fuel is a mixture of a variety of hydrocarbons. Because the exact composition of jet fuel varies widely based on petroleum source, it is impossible to define jet fuel as a ratio of specific hydrocarbons. Jet fuel is therefore defined as a performance specification rather than a chemical compound. Furthermore, the range of molecular mass between hydrocarbons (or different carbon numbers) is defined by the requirements for the product, such as the freezing point or smoke point. Kerosenetype jet fuel (including Jet A and Jet A1, JP5, and JP8) has a carbon number distribution between about 8 and 16 (carbon atoms per molecule); widecut or Naphtha – type jet fuel (including Jet B and JP4), between about 5 and 15.
