    #1 stove oil? My favorite source is from the bulk rack at the Shell (old Kwik Kard) facility at the corner of the Parks Highway and Vine. I fill 55s of gasoline there as well. High volume pumps!

    Petro Products used to have bulk #1 at their yard just south of Dowling on Lake Otis in Anchorage. I haven't been there for a few years, though.

    Default Jet-A vs Kerosene

    Commercial Jet-A is pure kerosene. This last summer i saw the prices of Kerosene at the store as high as $11 a gallon. Jet-A at your local airport is currently a little over $3 a gallon. I'm not sure if you can go fill up a 5 gallon can, but I believe their are unmanned pumps that you can use your credit card at.... I would think you could fill up a container.

    Discussed this a bit in this thread: http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...ad.php?t=44472
