Nozzles and Ports - Gravity Refueling Interface Standard for Civil Aircraft AS1852B

This SAE Aerospace Standard (AS) defines the maximum allowable free opening dimensions for airframe fueling ports on civil aircraft that require the exclusive use of gasoline as an engine fuel and the minimum free opening dimensions for airframe fueling ports on civil aircraft that operate with turbine fuels as the primary fuel type.

In addition, this document defines the minimum fuel nozzle tip dimensions for turbine fuel ground service equipment and the maximum fuel nozzle tip diameter for gasoline ground service equipment.

This document establishes the essential interface dimensions for airframe refueling ports and ground refueling nozzles that are intended for use on civil aircraft with gravity fuel servicing provisions.

Primary intent of the standardized interface limits detailed in this document is the prevention of misfueling reciprocating engine powered aircraft with turbine fuel when exclusive use of aviation gasoline is required for safe operation.
