Abstract : Severe logistic problems outside CONUS have made it necessary to reduce the number of fuels carried in Navy stock. The Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory conducted a series of tests to determine the suitability of JP-5 aviation turbine fuel as a replacement for DF-2 diesel fuel in construction type equipment. Preliminary findings disclosed that the JP-5 fuels currently available on the West Coast can be successfully used in the diesel engines assigned to the Naval Construction Forces without the use of additives or precautions, other than increased attention to the cleanliness of the fuel and the fuel system.
