Re: Did German jets really run on diesel?

In Germany; in the initial conceptual stages, especially during design and prototype manufacturing and testing stage, jet engines used “gas”. That is; hydrogen and propane gas. Maybe that is why they are referred as “gas turbine powerplants”. Joke aside; one of the advantages voiced for jet engines in 1938 was “use of cheap home-produced fuels”. The widely used jet engine on the Me-262 jet fighter, the Jumo 004, “was developed from the outset to burn diesel oil”.
