    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers the use of purchasing agencies in formulating specifications for purchases of aviation turbine fuel under contract.

    1.2 This specification defines one specific type of aviation turbine fuel for civil use in the certification of aircraft. The specification can be used as a standard in describing the quality of this aviation fuel from the refinery to the aircraft.

    1.3 This specification does not include the fuels that are commonly used in aviation turbine engines. Those are listed in Specification D1655.

    1.4 The aviation turbine fuel defined by this specification may be used in other than turbine engines that are specifically designed and certified for this fuel.

    1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
