Factors Affecting the ANTIKNOCK PERFORMANCE of POST-WAR FUELS 440169

THERE are four subjects to consider in determining the question of antiknock value of post-war gasolines:
  1. 1.
    How new wartime refinery equipment, now used for making aviation fuel, will be used to make motor gasoline.
  2. 2.
    The possible variations in chemical composition of gasolines, and the effect of such variations on the road antiknock behavior of the gasolines.
  3. 3.
    The effect of possible variations in engine and vehicle design on the antiknock ratings of the gasolines.
  4. 4.
    The probable laboratory octane values of post-war gasolines to be used as the “convenient” means of expressing fuel antiknock quality for refinery control.
