Alternative Fuel Technologies: Military Fuel Injection - Test Bench
- Published on Jan 6, 2010
- In addition to DME fuel injection development, AFT is also engaged in the improvement of commercial diesel common rail systems for U.S. military application. The U.S. military uses JP‐8 fuel for all of their
engine powered equipment from helicopters to diesel trucks. Modern truck diesel engines equipped
with high pressure common rail fuel systems suffer abnormal and unacceptable wear when run on JP‐8. AFT is redeveloping a well known diesel common rail system so that it is fully compatible with JP‐8 jet fuel.
