Abstract:

The fuel resistance of representative elastometric compounds exposed in commercial leaded, low-leaded, and unleaded gasolines is investigated and related to the aromatic content of these fuels. Similar data are obtained for exposure in standard ASTM and military test fuels. The efficacy of these test fuels is discussed and an alternative nonbenzene containing test fluid of 40 aromatic content is proposed for inclusion in ASTM and military standards.
