I want to set up a calculation for a supersonic gas jet impinging on a liquid surface
I heard that Fluent is not able to model compressible supersonic flows while using the VOF scheme and that it is very unstable.
Is this true ?

I would agree, VOF and compressible flow do not go together very well. But you are now talking about pushing CFD to its edge. I dont think any commerical CFD software can solve this problem.
