173rd Fighter Wing Fuels
A fuels technician opens a valve which combines a fuel additive called “plus 100” with a load of raw JP-8. The additive catalyzes a cleaner burn by raising the temperature of the reaction when it burns in a jet engine. This benefits the engines by preventing “coking” a buildup or crusting that can occur in fighter engines.
