Real life imitates Family Guy

Drunken man tries to fill his car with jet fuel:
SAN JOSE, Calif. - A drunken man broke into a small airport and tried to fill up his car's gas tank with jet fuel, police said. Police arrested the man, 20, on Sunday night for driving while intoxicated and attempted theft.

The man probably wasn't trying to save money. The aviation fuel in the pumps used for aircraft and race cars, was going for $5.97 a gallon, accessed by a credit card, authorities said.

"We've had people try and steal gas here in the past," said Jim Meide, who works in operations at the county-run Reid-Hillview Airport in East San Jose.

The only question I have is whether it was Avgas or jet A. Avgas would run in a car's internal combustion engine. Jet A, seeing as how it's kerosene based...not so much.

That Family Guy episode?
