Don’t worry. Curiosity is a good thing. It is good to be curious.

What sort of engine does an Auxiliary Power Unit have?
It really makes a lot of noise!
I much rather hear a jet engine. ;)
Does it run on jet fuel?

It uses the same fuel as the normal engines. The fuel is taken from the normal fuel tanks.

It is only on at the gate until the engines are started after pushback, and again once you land until the ground power is connected at the gate (unless under ETOPS).

It is a small jet engine, some information here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auxiliary_power_unit#Transport_aircraft
