What’s The Difference Between Jet Fuel and Car Fuel?

Jet fuel and car fuel both come from crude oil, but you definitely can’t put jet fuel in your car to make it go faster. Why not?

When Diesel Won’t Do, Toyota Uses Jet Fuel

“A funny thing happens when diesel fuel drops below -30 degrees Fahrenheit: It turns to jelly. So when Icelandic 4×4 conversion specialists Arctic Trucks began prepping a fleet of Toyota Hilux pickups for the longest polar expedition in history, they had to find a new fuel source to cope with the frigid climes.”

What’s the Difference Between Gasoline, Kerosene, Diesel, etc.?

“The ‘crude oil’ pumped out­ of the ground is a black liquid called petroleum. This liquid contains aliphatic hydrocarbons, or hydrocarbons composed of nothing­ but hydrogen and carbon. The carbon atoms link together in chains of different lengths. It turns out that hydrocarbon molecules of different lengths have different properties and behaviors.”
Kerosene and Gasoline Flash Point

“When examining the difference between the fuels used to power a car versus a plane, it is critical to analyze the fundamental difference in their flash point. The question of "can I put jet fuel in my car to make it run incredibly fast?" seems somewhat entertaining on the surface level, but is shot down immediately by simple aspects of how the respective engines are built to run. Jet engines work fundamentally different than piston engines, and therefore their fuel requirements are drastically different.”

Jet On The Streets: Angel MedFlight Air Ambulance

Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance

On January 10th, at 1AM, Angel MedFlight worldwide Air Ambulance entered their Learjet 35 into the Parade of Planes making their way to the Barrett-Jackson Auto Show from the Scottsdale Municipal Airport . The temperature, a chilly 40 degrees with a slight wind was present. Angel MedFlight Air Ambulance's technicians, media, and public relations crews were on hand to guide the plane down one of the busiest streets in Scottsdale — Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard.

Preparations to get the plane to the starting point of Frank Lloyd Wright Blvd. were strategically planned and executed with precision. The danger of pulling a jet with a 39 foot wingspan for a stretch of 2 miles are plentiful: cars, signs, lampposts, vegetation etc. Even with escort provided by the Scottsdale Police Department, the unknown can happen — and did. One renegade driver with a lack of patience found themselves in a bit of trouble with the law when cutting through the Parade.

"It was a great team effort, everyone was aware of their surroundings, and everyone worked together to get the Learjet safely down Frank Lloyd Wright and into Westworld."

While the Parade of Planes is not a publicized event, it is an annual occurrence for Barrett-Jackson sponsors who have aircraft that need to get to the event location. In years past, the parade generally included, single-engine or multi-engine prop planes, but that night, Angel MedFlight's Learjet 35 made an appearance one won't soon forget. This is the largest airplane to ever be displayed at Barrett-Jackson. Additionally, it was, by far, the largest aircraft in the Parade and required the most supervision and caution.

Director of Operations, Brandon Kearns at Aviation West Charters (dba Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance) was in attendance to ensure the safe transfer as well. Moving foliage and ensuring sign clearance as the jet slowly rolled required a keen eye and fast reflexes.

"The local law enforcement did a fantastic job of blocking off the roads for us. We had a great group of people from Angel MedFlight as well as some officials from Barrett-Jackson and the Scottsdale Airport." Kearns was asked if he had ever been involved in a transfer of this kind. He replied, "I have been in aviation for 16 years… this would have to be the first time."

Angel MedFlight Worldwide Air Ambulance is excited to feature their latest member of the medically-configured jet lineup — the Learjet 35.
