dc.descriptionThe use of antiknock compounds in aircraft operations has practically become a necessity for two main reasons: the constantly increasing use of higher compression ratios and the necessity for a cheaper fuel. The addition of antiknock compounds makes this possible. However, an experiment with a high test aviation gasoline containing antiknock resulted in the obstruction of the fuel system by considerable amounts of extraneous matter, resulting from the corrosion of the gasoline tanks and accumulation of the corroded matter in tubes and strainers. It was considered advisable to investigate the effect of fuels and doped fuels on various materials in order to determine if these compounds would produce any injurious results on the fuel system.en_US
