This report describes the evaluation of the effectiveness of corrosion inhibitors as fuel lubricity agents. The study was conducted with the Furey Ball-on-Cylinder. In the study, the eleven corrosion inhibitors from QPL- 25017-9 were evaluated as lubricity agents in three base fluids, at various concentrations, and at the two base fluid temperatures of 75F and 150F. The rank effectiveness of the inhibitors correlated for the following two cases 1 The inhibitors at their maximum allowable concentration in the three base fluids at 75F. 2 The inhibitors at three concentrations in the same base fluid at 75F. The rank effectiveness of the inhibitors did not correlate for the case where the corrosion inhibitors were at their maximum allowable concentrations in the same base fluid but at the two different temperatures of 75F and 150F.
