Fuels that DGCI Often Provides

Listed below is a brief description of some of the fuel types that DGCI provides –- reliably, at a competitive price, and in complete conformance with industry specifications, Quality standards and mission requirements.

F18
F18 is a low lead aviation gasoline in limited use by certain NATO nations. It is also known as AVGAS 100LL.

JP-4US
Military Specification JP4 and NATO Fuel Code F40 are the same specification. They are the military equivalent of Jet B with the addition of corrosion inhibitor and anti-icing additives. JP-4 meets the requirements of the U.S. Military Specification MIL-PRF-5624S Grade JP-4. The UK Military specification for this grade is DEF STAN 91-88 AVTAG/FSII(formerly DERD 2454) where FSII stands for Fuel Systems Icing Inhibitor.

JP-8/F34
US Military Specification JP8 and NATO Fuel Code F34 are the same specification. They are the military equivalent of Jet A-1 with the addition of corrosion inhibitor and anti-icing additives. JP-8 meets the requirements of the U.S. Military Specification MIL-T-83188D. It is the dominant military jet fuel grade for NATO airforces. The UK also has a specification for this grade –DEF STAN91-87 AVTUR/FSII(formerly DERD 2453).

F35
F35 is a military kerosene type aviation turbine fuel equivalent to that used by most civil operators of gas turbine engine aircraft. It is also known as JET A-1 or AVTUR. Therefore, F-34 = F-35 + Additives.

JP-5/F44
US Military Specification JP5 and NATO Fuel Code F44 are the same specification. JP-5 is a high flash point kerosene meeting the requirements of the U.S. Military Specification MIL-PRF-5624S Grade JP-5. The UK Military specification for this grade is DEF STAN 91-86 AVCAT/FSII(formerly DERD 2452). This jet fuel is primarily intended for use in aircraft carriers.

JPTS
JPTS stands for Jet Propellant Thermally Stable. It is a high thermal stability, high altitude fuel that is specifically designed for United States high altitude reconnaissance aircraft. It is a specialty fuel that is produced by only two oil refineries in the United States. JPTS has a flash point of 43 C (110 F) and a freezing point of -53 C or -64F. Its flammability limits are 1% and 6%. JPTS has an appearance of a water-white clear liquid with specific gravity of 0.816. It is insoluble in water. It is composed of a complex mixture of petroleum hydrocarbons.

DF2/F54
US Military Specification DF2 and NATO Fuel Code F54 are the same specification. It is a military fuel used in compression ignition engines in NATO Europe areas outside Denmark, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom. It has a Pour Point specification of 18oC maximum.

F76
F76 is a naval fuel used in compression ignition engines and in naval gas turbines and ships’ boilers for steam raising. It is also known as FUEL, NAVAL DISTILLATE, low pour point.
