Abstract:

Aviation turbine fuel, aviation gasoline and automotive gasoline have been stored in about 200 coated drums at an outdoor site in Ottawa since October, 1957 under a long term storage project designed to evaluate the coatings. This is of interest to the R.C.A.F., who have had corrosion and fuel contamination problems arising from the storage of drums of these products in northern caches.
