Future Possibilities of 100-Octane Aircraft-Engine Fuel 360127
INCLUDED in this paper are: Comparative performance of various types of fuels in high-output, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine, and comparative performance of 100-octane toluene blend and iso-octane blend relative to 92-octane Army method regular gasoline in full-scale engine with two-speed supercharger and normal compression ratio.
Endurance tests scheduled in Cyclone and two-row Wasp with 8:1 compression ratio and very low specific fuel consumption.
Military present and contemplated future use of this fuel and its commercial possibilities.
Possible means for increasing available supply. Availability of unleaded high-antiknock fuels and leaded fuels superior to 100-octane fuel.
