The increased pressure on decreasing fuel supplies has prompted the Air Force to examine fuels previously considered unacceptable. Fuels derived from shale oil and fuels in high in sulfur and mercaptan sulfur were among those considered unacceptable. The objective of this program was to evaluate nonmetallic aircraft materials relative to increased levels or aromatics, sulfur, and mercaptan sulfur. Aircraft materials that are normally in contact or exposed to fuels were evaluated in ten fuel formulations.
