Today's kerosene jet fuels have been developed from the illuminating kerosene used in the early gas turbine engines. These engines needed a fuel with good combustion characteristics and a high energy content. The kerosene type fuels used in civil aviation nowadays are mainly Jet A-1. Jet A-1 kerosene fuel is suitable for most turbine-engined aircraft.
Avgas is used in small piston engine powered aircraft within the general aviation community predominately for activities such as private pilots, flight training, flying clubs and crop spraying. Piston engines operate using the same basic principles as spark ignition engines of cars, but they have a much higher performance requirement. In today’s general aviation community there are only two main Avgas grades: 100 and 100LL.
