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.
D6 Virgin Fuel Oil is also being known as Residual Fuel Oil and is of high–viscosity. This particular fuel oil requires preheating to 220–260ºF (= 104, 44–126, 66°C).D6 is mostly used for generators. Recent changes in fuel quality regulation now require further refining of the D6 in order to remove the sulfur, which leads to a higher cost.
