Fullwings, the J-2 engines used on the second and third stages burned LH2 and LOx. The first stage F-1 engines burned kerosene and LOx. The NERVA engine, never operational, used only liquid hydrogen for fuel, but it was a nuclear reactor. The Apollo 13 accident was caused by an explosion in a LOx tank in the service module.
