I am looking for some information on the fuel used in large commercial
transports such as the 777 and 747.

What fuel or fuels are typically used, and what is the density and the
current price?  Dan Raymer's book provides some data, but only for
aviation gasoline, JP-4, JP-5, and JP-8.

Also, what is the specific fuel consumption of a 747 and/or 777?
