1342 Kerosene

Kerosene is a refined middle-distillate petroleum product that finds considerable use as a jet fuel and as a fuel for cooking and space heating around the world. When used as a jet fuel, some of the critical qualities are freeze point, flash point, and smoke point. The boiling point ranges for commercial and military jet fuels are about 375 to 525 and 130 to 550°F. Kerosene, with less critical specifications, is used for lighting, heating, solvents, and blending into diesel fuel.

Kerosene is one of the easiest fuels to store. It does not evaporate as readily as gasoline and will remain stable in storage with no special treatment, unlike diesel. Many pre-1950 farm tractor engines were designed to run on kerosene, and diesel generators can run on kerosene if necessary.
