Nobody makes JP54 jet fuel. All refineries around the world only produce Jet A-1, USGC Jet 54, TS-1 (Russia + CIS). 99% of all offers mentioning jet fuel/kerosene with the designation JP54 are fake.
JP54 is an acronym for “Jet Propulsion, A1, Colonial Grade 54” During the refining process, only 15% of crude oil is made up of JP54, with the rest of the grade being used for other types of plastic.
Russian Jet Fuel – JP54/Jet A1
Russian Jet Fuel, Aviation Turbine Fuel (ATF), is a type of aviation fuel developed for use in gas turbine powered aircraft. b>. It has a colorless to straw-colored appearance.
Aviation Kerosene Colonial Grade 54 Jet Fuel JP 54: Jet Fuel A-1. Jet fuel for use in aircraft powered by gas turbine engines. It has a clear to straw colored appearance. The most common fuels used in commercial aviation are Jet A and Jet A-1, which are manufactured to a standardized international specification.
A mixture of approximately 30% kerosene and 70% gasoline, known as broad-cut fuel. It has a very low freezing point of −60 °C (−76 °F) and also a low flash point. It is mainly used in some military aircraft.

D6 fuel. D6 is a type of residual fuel used primarily in power plants and larger ships. The fuel must be preheated before it can be used. It is not possible to use it in smaller engines or ships/vehicles where it is not possible to preheat it. D6 is its name in the US.
Jet fuel can actually be used in cars, but only in diesel engines. Kerosene jet fuel and diesel are actually similar enough to allow cross functionality and would perform similarly. However, I would not recommend running a jet on diesel.
Russia produces and consumes a lot of Jet A1 aviation fuel, also known as kerosene.
There are still some major differences between diesel and Jet-A. For starters there is a higher level of sulfur and other additives – including cetane and the cetane number – in Jet-A than is allowed in your diesel. This can result in fines and even damage your engine.
In May and June, deliveries of fuel for the aircraft and spare producers were in equal proportions. Russia typically produces about 12 million tons of kerosene annually, of which 20% is flown for export.
Jet-A fuel consistently costs less than 100LL due to its simpler refining process, ease of transportation (via pipelines as it contains no lead) and economies of scale from demand volume.
Although the fuel syndicates do not buy, sell or own jet fuel, they do assist their member airlines in controlling the cost of delivering the fuel to their member airlines’ aircraft. In a highly competitive business, the fuel syndicates are an example of collaboration between the member airlines of the syndicate.
Jet fuel that has been properly manufactured, stored, and handled should have a shelf life of at least one year.
