  • Content Description: From Summary: "F-3 and F-4 knock data are presented for blends of 0, 20, 40, 60, and 80 percent by volume of triptane in 28-R reference fuel plus approximately 4.6 ml TEL per gallon in the final blends. For comparison of knock-limited performance, 28-R reference fuel containing 2.7 percent by volume of xylidines and leaded to 6 ml TEL per gallon is included. In order to provide information on temperature sensitivities, two sets of modified conditions were used in addition to the standard F-4 engine conditions."
