Paraffin?

Well, if you can't buy RP-1...
With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine - however, this is not necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are
going to land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly overhead.

Could be regional confusion: the US uses Kerosene for both the refined and less refined versions, where many parts of the world use Kerosene for the less refined aviation fuel and Paraffin for the more refined version. RP-1 is refined Kerosene, after all, so could also be called a high grade of Paraffin.

It's a hybrid engine, so the paraffin is a solid. The other name for kerosene is paraffin oil.
