Commercial Jet Fuel
A higher tier of service for your aviation fuel needs.
We offer commercial customers the following types of jet fuel: Jet A-1 and Colonial Grade 54. Our products meet the Aviation Fuel Quality Requirements for Jointly Operated Systems (AFQRJOS), adhere to the rigorous Defense Standard 91-091 requirements, and comply with the ASTM D1655 specifications.
JET A-1, Colonial Grade 54
JET A-1 is an aviation fuel formerly known as "kerosene" which is suitable for most jet aircraft. It meets stringent international requirements, particularly those of the latest versions of the AFQRJOS, the British DEF STAN 91-91 standard, the ASTM D1655 standard, and the NATO F-35 specification.
It has a minimum flashpoint of 38°C and a maximum freezing point of -47°C. The density at 15°C is 0.804 kg/L. The lower freezing point compared to Jet A (-40°C) makes it suitable for long-haul international flights, especially those passing over polar routes.
JET A-1 is the most common type of jet fuel in the United States, and it is the principal fuel used for jet turbine engines. It is also used in general aviation for compatible diesel engine planes.

Jet Fuels such as JET A-1 and JET A are easier to source than Avgas as they come off the refining process first. The simple refining process makes them also cheaper than Avgas. Avgas is used to power piston-engine aircraft and propeller aircraft whereas jet fuel is used for jet engines.
With proper fuel management, fuel can be stored for prolonged periods of time. Military organizations frequently store jet fuel for as long as 36 months with no significant changes to fuel quality specifications.
