Abstract : The patent application describes a turbine engine fuel having a high flash point and low viscosity at -60F. It is a blend of two to twenty percent by volume of a C10 or higher alkyl benzene and the remaining volume consisting of a hydrogenated naptha oil fraction. The fraction is obtained by taking a naptha fraction from the crude and hydrogenating the naptha fraction to reduce aromatics. Aromatics containing ten or more carbon atoms are then added to the naptha fraction.
