JP-8100 was introduced into the field in 1994. Since that time, JP-8100 has received limited acceptance due to a lack of solid engineering information and scientific fact regarding use and limitations of the additive Spec-Aidregistered trademark 8Q462. As a result, no official Air Force position has ever been established regarding the additives use or non-use. In 2006, Senior Leader for Propulsion, Ted Fecke convened and tasked an IPT to formulate and recommend a supportable Air Force position regarding the use of JP-8100 in Air Force Weapons Systems. In fulfillment of that tasking, the IPT has collected all relevant available technical and scientific information about JP-8100 and has formulated a supportable position based on these facts. In conclusion, this report documents field data and maintenance experience supporting the use of JP-8100 additive technology in all Air Force Weapon Systems using JP-8.
