I recently read here that high performance
military jets use kerosene for fuel due to it's
higher energy density. If these planes can use
kerosene, why do 'normal' jet engines use high
octane jet fuel? Am I missing something? Thanks!
Question Date: 2016-03-09
Just doing a quick lookup, I find out that the
military uses a lot of different kinds of fuel for
its jets, but couldn't find out why specific fuels
were used over others. Might it be classified?
