Abstract:

Tests were conducted to evaluate the COT Military Fuel Testing Engine from a users viewpoint and to provide data for comparison with data obtained from samples of fuel tested by the standard ASTM methods using the CFR Cooperative Fuel Research engine. Approximately 140 tests were conducted using primary reference, army combat, QM reference, and commercial fuels over a wide range of humidity and barometric conditions. The engine rated motor gasoline within one octane number for approximately 95 of the samples tested. The COT Military Fuel Testing Engine is a satisfactory tool for determining octane values of motor gasoline in the field. Investigation should be continued to determine the possibility of using this basic engine to rate aviation and compression-ignition engine fuels. Author
