Abstract : Under emergency or combat conditions, motor gasoline for spark-ignition engines may be temporarily unavailable, or at best in short supply. To determine the feasibility of substituting other fuels (AVGAS 115/145 aviation gasoline, DF-2 diesel fuel, and JP-5 turbine fuel), or mixtures thereof, for motor gasoline, the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory operated three Hercules water-cooled engines and one Wisconsin air-cooled engine (all of them coupled to generators) on AVGAS 115/145 or mixtures of AVGAS 115/145 with DF-2 or JP-5.
