2 cycle walmart oil, 5% per tank.

I'm seeing around 100 degrees less EGT's....but my mileage is suffering...losing around 3-5 mpg's

it is not cost effective to run JetA/JP8....unless you can get "reclaim fuel"....which is....the test samples from different aircraft.....they store it in a big tank, and empty it when it gets full.

I am working on a project that requires jp-8 to be run in are gen sets. And my experiance so far is that it is DIRTY!!! Nothing but filtering problems. So much that were required to put in a backup fuel system so you can replace the dirty filter with out shutting the set down. And it can reclog in a mater of a couple hours or less.

I figured you were getting fuel-sample fuel because it will cost an "arm and a leg" everywhere you can find it. We use to use it to light bonfires on the beach. Guess we should have been saving that JP4 from long time ago....!
