JP-4 is described as a "wide cut, gasoline type" fuel, whereas JP-8 is more like kerosene (much less flammable than gasoline).
It may be needless to point out but there are stores of JP-8 stateside and quantities of JP-4 overseas, and this entire fuels picture from refinery to fuel tank is well controlled by the appropriate specifications.
In the case of JP-4 and JP-8 standard test fluids - Type I (for JP-8) and Type III (for JP-4) - are used.
