Pagination or Media Count:
Six different types of Army engines were endurance tested on dynamometers for 125 hr each, using three grades of military Federal specification gasoline having typical conventionally leaded, low-lead, and unleaded concentrations of lead antiknock additives, respectively. All six engine types performed satisfactorily on all gasoline blends from the standpoints of 1 catastrophic failure, 2 excessive valve or cylinder wear, 3 engine power output and fuel and oil consumption, and 4 emissions degradation.
