This document describes a number of jet fuel properties and where applicable gives the specification limits for Jet A and Jet A-1, though the properties are generally applicable to all turbine fuels. Later versions of this document will give more details on specification limits for other similar fuels, such as TS-1, where they differ from Jet A and Jet-A1. It gives details about the possible impact on airframe fuel system design.
There is a general lack of understanding across the industry of how the different properties of jet fuel may impact the design of fuel system equipment. In recent years, with the development of synthetic fuels, this has become important. This document tries to give an overview of what should be considered in the design of any new system, or when considering the impact of a new fuel pathway on an existing fuel system.

* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
