Abstract : In view of substantial economies anticipated in the field of fuel logistics, an investigation was conducted to determine the feasibility of substituting JP-5 aviation turbine fuel for standard DF-2 diesel fuel in large bore, low speed diesel engines. The investigation included: (1) consultation with engineering and service representatives of engine and injection equipment manufacturers: (2) detailed examinations of typical engines following lengthy operation on JP-5 fuel; (3) on-the-spot inspection and analysis of reported large bore engine-fuel difficulties. From this investigation it was concluded that JP-5 can be substituted for DF-2 in large bore, low speed diesel engines with no appreciable ill effects to the engine or injection equipment, provided only that certain basic precautionary measures are observed.
