Which are advantages (and disadvantages) compared to gasoline or petroil?

  • $\begingroup$ Putting 100LL or 100UL in a turboprop is a good way to blow it up. Putting Jet-A in a piston engine is a good way to keep it from running, typically during take-off. Different fuels have different properties that are matched to the type of combustion that they perform. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @RonBeyer -- 100LL in a turbine can be tolerated under some conditions (most smaller gas turbines can digest it AFAIK). However, Jet-A really makes spark-ignition engines unhappy campers! $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 27, 2016 at 1:30
