The Department of Defense (DOD) has adopted to use JP-8 under the “single battlefield fuel” policy. Fuel properties of JP-8 which are different from ULSD include Cetane number, density, heating value and bulk modulus. This paper determines which of these properties cause the loss in power and suggest some strategies to regain the power lost while operating on JP-8 instead of ULSD.
