Abstract:

The effect of MIL-T-83133C grade JP-8 fuel, with respect to MIL-F46162C 1 S DF-2, was established for Army Material Handling Equipment clean-bum diesel engines. The areas investigated included emissions gaseous and particulate, power, performance, and durability. The engines revealed reduced emissions utilizing JP-8, with an average decrease in power at 5 percent and an increase in fuel consumption of 2 percent. The durability of an Isuzu C-240 engine with JP-8 was enhanced relative to the MIL-F46162C fuel. Rough-terrain forklifts were evaluated for fuel consumption and power availability while utilizing JP-8 fuel. The results indicated an average 4-percent increase in fuel consumption and a 3-percent mean decrease in vehicular performance....
