An investigation was conducted to define the feasibility for using the Jet Fuel Thermal Oxidation Tester JFTOT as a laboratory predictor to assess diesel fuel quality relative to operating performance. A methodology was subsequently established to define diesel fuel performance relative to filter pressure differentials at limiting operating temperatures. A variety of diesel fuels and candidate additives were screened using this approach. The modified JFTOT did effectively screen and discriminate between the fuels as a result of their composition, hydrocarbon quality, and possible contaminants. Author
