Test reports on 5611 samples of JP-4 fuel purchased in 1970 have been analyzed to determine average properties and distribution of values for each of eight geographical districts, and the results have been compared with those of previous years. A significant trend toward lower-boiling fuel was noted. The frequency of values outside the specification limits was quite low, below 0.1 for most tests. Criteria and methods used in the present analysis have been listed, and suggestions have been made for improvements that can be made whenever a standardized test report form is available. Author
