Abstract: The present invention is directed to a Fischer-Tropsch derived distillate suitable for use as a turbine fuel having a flash point 38.degree. C. minimum measured by ASTM D 56 and a freeze point of -40.degree. C. or less and further containing not less than 0.01 wt. % oxygen in each of 1-pentanol, 1-hexanol, and 1-heptanol and not more than about 0.01 wt. % oxygen in C.sub.8+ linear alcohols. Preferably, the Fischer-Tropsch derived distillate will have a freeze point of at least -47.degree. C., and more preferably the freeze point of the Fischer-Tropsch derived distillate will be not less than -50.degree. C. All the wt. % oxygen amounts are on a water free basis.
