Default quick fuel question?

How can you tell if the fuel has oil in it already?
Will it do anything to add another qt of oil to 5gal of fuel?

I got a 5gal of fuel with the airplane, but didn't ask if he had already added oil to the other 5gal tank.

So I don't want to dump 5 gal of fuel , and I already poured some into a clear container. Its not likely kero, it is yellow in color. just like the fuel that ws in the filling container.

its a RINO turbine.

Hi Tampaflyer
If you can't get in touch with the person who sold you the jet and the fuel and you positvely can't figure out if it has oil all ready mixed in than i suggest you use it as weed killer and start from scratch. It's not worth the risk of damaging your turbine or crashing your jet to save a few dollars. Just my opinion

Put some in a shallow dish and let the kero evaporate. should be only oil left after a day or two............If no oil, then there was none...............
