Quote:Officials say aviation fuel was pumped into cars after it was mistakenly delivered to three New Jersey gas stations.
Authorities closed a station in Lawrence, and two in Hamilton after the error was discovered.
Mercer County spokeswoman Julie Willmot tells The Times of Trenton the stations will remain closed until all underground storage tanks, lines and filters are emptied and cleaned.
State officials are investigating how the mistake happened.
Several cars stalled on Friday when a gas station in Keyport and one in Manasquan unknowingly pumped jet fuel into their tanks.

This is exactly why I taste the gasoline before I start pumping it.

It would have been so much more fun if people would have started to report flames coming out of the backs of cars and watching them scream down the road at 175 mph.....Shrug

Well, what do you think fuel-injector and fuel-tank cleaners are? Besides being in better proportions. Tongue

Isn't jetfuel basically just kerosene, which is basically diesel?

There was an episode of The Amazing Race a few years ago where many of the teams didn't realize they were driving diesels and ended up putting gas in their rentals. Killed every car that did it.

Yes, and yes. Kerosene is also what fuel-injector cleaner and other fuel-related chemicals are.

Pretty much yeah, it's just a REALLY purified kerosene. You can throw jet fuel in a diesel truck and cruise on down the road. Try that in a gasoline engine and you've just screwed the pooch... Saw some guy do that at Sheetz to his buddy's truck. I stopped him but he had already put a few gallons of diesel in it... Told him to fill it the rest of the way with some Premium and that, while the truck won't really like it, it will be fine... lol

Was it actual jet fuel or just aviation fuel for prop planes? Avgas isn't bad for cars. It's really high octane though. We used to run it in two stroke motocross bikes all the time. It's got a distinct exhaust smell over regular gasoline.

Doesn't kerosene have a very distinct smell over gasoline though? You'd think those "professional" pump attendants in NJ would have noticed something.
