Abstract:

Experiments started in 1969 to ascertain the storage stability of the new MIL-F-24397 Navy Distillate fuel have been completed. Long-term experiments simulating actual storage at ambient temperatures and accelerated tests for predictive purposes were run. If the four fuels used in this investigation are repesentative, Navy Distillate fuels procured under MIL-F-24397 can be expected to be as stable in storage as diesel fuels procured under MIL-F-16884. The inclusion of a requirement based on the accelerated procedure of ASTM D2274-70 is recommended for the Navy Distillate specification. Further, the storage stability of any new Navy shipboard fuel differing greatly from present fuels in composition, source, or specification requirements should be investigated, and the applicability of accelerated methods for predicting storage stability for such fuel should be confirmed.
