A 2080 blend of DSH8JP-8 fuels with a CILI additive was operated in rotary, mechanical, fuel-lubricated, fuel injection pumps for a 500-hour target at 77 C fuel inlet temperature. A 2080 blend of DSH8JP-8 with 9-ppm CILI operated at 77 C fuel inlet temperature will allow 500-Hours of rotary pump operation. However the performance degradation of the fuel injection pumps at 500-Hours could impact engine governor operation, and component inspections suggested excessive transfer pump liner wear.
