Abstract
Here we present a plan to develop and prototype a JP-8 battle-fuel conditioner (BFC) based on the objective of taking advantage of the high performance and low costs of commercial gas appliances in military kitchens and for which a working proof of feasibility was completed in Phase I. As envisioned, the BFC would be installed as an add-on it to existing gas appliances to allow them to operate on JP-8 or DF-2, with appliance operation almost unchanged vs. operation on gaseous fuels.
