K-1 shelf life?
« on: August 17, 2012, 08:32:10 AM »
 Kerosene shelf life?
How long will kerosene last before it goes "off"? Does it ever go off? I was wondering so I could store some for the kerosene heaters.

Also, can K-1 be used in Diesels engines?

Do you use K-1 white or dyed.

Kerosene, Diesel, and Jet Fuel (JP-4) are so close to the same that they can usually be interchanged.

My understanding is that the biggest difference is the amount of particulates in them. K1 has the "most" then diesel(which I have heard called K2), with JP-4 having the least. I don't say this with complete certainty, but it makes sense to me.
