The pressures within the U.K. to mount a large and rapid program on future fuels are minimal because of its off-shore oil fields. However, as a major exporter of aircraft engines which operate worldwide, some work has proceeded over the past five years to determine the impact of a deteriorating fuel specification. Much of this work has been aimed at the industrial uses of aircraft using diesel fuel as the alternative to kerosine. Trends have been established for emissions (gaseous and black smoke) which agree with data published by other observers. However rig data at high pressures (>20 Bars) from a tubular combustor suggest that increases in liner temperatures may not have as great an impact on combustor life as some have concluded. General comments on the production of “white smoke” at sub-idle conditions and the impact of reduced thermal stability are included.
