The Clean Air Act and related Statelocal regulations require facilities to periodically prepare and submit air emissions inventories which quantify the annual emissions from the various stationary sourcesprocesses located at the installation. For Air Force installations, these inventories must include the evaporative losses associated with the transfer and storage of jet fuel i.e., JP-8. To accurately calculate the evaporative losses associated with fuel storage and transfer operation, the true vapor pressure of the fuel at various ambient temperatures must be known. Unfortunately, very little JP-8 vapor pressure information is currently available for temperatures at or below 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This report measured the true vapor pressure of several representative JP-8 fuel at seven different ambient range temperatures.
