Do you burn unwanted Jet-A fuel in your car or truck? If so, do you use an additive or lubricant to add some lubricity to it?  Thanks.

Do you plan on stealing a bunch of jet A? Jet is like diesel but higher viscosity. Add one quart of transmission fluid to every tank of diesel so you don't burn the fuel pump. Also, dont get caught.

Thanks, No not stealing it. Anytime I end up having to defuel an aircraft, I end up with lots of waste. I dont have anything that I can filter it through so I'd rather be safe and just get rid of it.

I never ran more than a 50/50 Jet A to diesel mixture, as Jet A burns hotter, (valve damage). On vehicles that require DEF, dunno if damage could occur.

I occasionaly get some waste from defueling or accumulated sump samples. As mentioned above, I never exceed 50% (usually only 5 gallons here and there) and I always run PWS addative anyways. Truck is a 2000 Ford 7.3.
