Abstract : This report is the third of 3 volumes describing the Joint DOD/DOE Shale Oil Project. It summarizes results of tests to evaluate suitability of shale JP-5, shale DFM, and shale residual oil for use in a wide variety of engines, including marine boilers, diesel engines and gas turbines; various commercial engines; and aircraft gas turbine engines. The shale fuels proved completely acceptable for use in every engine in which it was evaluated. In addition, toxicity and mutagenicity were found to be similar to those for petroleum fuels.
