The current proposed ASTM GT fuel oil specifications for gas turbines imposes certain limits on contaminants. This paper presents some operating experiences with two gas turbines using a fuel oil that approaches these maximum limits for vanadium and sodium for the proposed Nos. 1, 2, and 3 GT fuels. One year’s satisfactory operation was achieved although evidence of minor corrosion was present, but insufficient to cause replacement of components.
