Hadn't thought of that.

Or contact ADM or Acme Hardesty which both make good esters.

there was no such thing as a switch from JP-5 to 8. Both are active specifications for currently used fuels. JP-8 is a low flashpoint jet like Jet-A and actively used in army/USMC diesels and generators as well as terrestrially-based jet aircraft and gas turbine engines.

JP-5 is a high flashpoint jet fuel used in ships to operate sea-based jet aircraft, and can be used in place of DFM/F-76 high flashpoint diesel in marine gas turbines.

Both jets are currently dirtier (sulfur content) than equivalent distillate fuels. I'd be careful with the JP-8 additives.

Some interesting developments in JP-8 as an altrnative deisel fuel.

The Army through the SBIR small business development award program has been working with Alternative Fuels Technology (Redmond MI) for the past several years on mitigating the valve wear problem caused by the low lubricity of JP-8.

Phase 1 and Phase 2 have been completed and they are now selected for Phase 3, commercialization. They did the work on the Bosch CP-3 common rail.

You can view the results of Phase 1 and Phase 2 R&D on the following link go to "filter: type "alt" and view the Alternative Fuels Technology entries. Army has selected them for phase 3 commercialization. More information about that process can be read at the SBIR Phase 3 commercialization brochure

Use it, if not, bring it to me, lol. I know many guys running it, including me. An older Cummin's, 6.0 PS, etc.

If your concerned, just add some 2 stroke oil for some lubricity or a decent additive. You will lose some power so be warned about that.

How much of a difference is there between K-1 kerosene and JP-5 or JP-8?
