EN Term “jet fuel” is well known and recognized worldwide - it applies to aviation product used to power all turbine engines in aircrafts and helicopters. Its’ properties are clearly and strictly defined in international specifications. However, in the discussion concerning jet fuels, and in most research material, many people seem to forget that this fuel is a mixture of different hydrocarbons, is produced from different feedstock (crude oil from different sources available worldwide) and as a final product is obtained with different production processes. Thus, however jet fuel must meet the requirements defined in international standards, these fuels differ each other and as a result, differences can be observed in logistic chain and in combustion process. This paper points out some differences between jet fuels and its aim is to convict users, researchers and all people in aviation industry dealing with jet engines operation, that - when talking about jet fuel - many factors and details about final product must be considered, and this type of product should not be seen as single-type fuel, as most people see it now. The article has been prepared within the research project funded by the National Science Centre in Poland and granted with decision no. DEC-2011/01/D/ST8/06567.
