Abstract

THERE has recently been a marked tendency in aviation petrol specifications (particularly in the U.S.A.) to demand fuels of increasing volatility. The idea behind this is that the higher the volatility the better the distribution of the fuel and, therefore, the more uniform the mixture delivered to the various cylinders wjll be.
