Abstract:

The purpose of the demonstration was to capture real world vehicle data and perceptions of military personnel while a variety of tactical ground vehicles and equipment were operated on a candidate drop-in alternative fuel for the Single Battlefield Fuel, JP-8. The candiate drop-in fuel is a blend of up to 50 by volume of Hydroprocessed Esters and Fatty Acids Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene EFA SPK and JP-8. The results from this demonstration will augment a significant set of evaluations already completed that indicate this biofuel is a viable drop-in fuel to replace petroleum-based JP-8.
