International Fuel names

The following document was a project that began in the 90s as a guide for hikers. The Original version is maintained by Doron Papo
NAFAA will be building upon this document beginning 2014. The “gasoline” section has been dropped in this version, and replaced with lamp oil – intended for fire breathers. We’ll also be tracking Isopropanol.
