This one looked especially interesting, has the highest octane. It will no doubt boil 2 cups in under 3 min. :D

Not sure of it's composition but just a thought because of the high octane. What about the airport, I'm thinking jet fuel but I'm not sure what it's chemical makeup is. The thing on speed shops is what got me thinking that. I know a lot of the people that race at the local track go get there fuel from the airport because it's better than the racefuel they sell at the track. But I don't know the chemical makeup of either so I'm just throwing the thought out there! :mrgreen:

My understanding is that Jet Fuel is highly refined kerosene. I'll ask about racing fuels at the airport. Good tip Mayhem.
