Abstract:

Representative fuel-resistant elastomers, plastics, and metals were evaluated for compatibility with commercial gasolines, diesel fuel, ASTM test fuels, and blends thereof with ethanol and methanol at several concentration levels. The test program was designed to ascertain the effects of the fuels on the materials as well as the effects, if any, of the materials on the fuels. Results were analyzed and interpreted of significant changes in the performance characteristics of the materials and the fuels which would be indicative of potential incompatibilities for use in end items of military equipment.
