NOTE: The abbreviations listed below, except for LO, follow S.A.E. J754 nomenclature. The classifications follow S.A.E. J183 classifications. The MIL specifications are U.S.A. Military Specifications. These definitions will be of assistance in purchasing. The specific classifications for this machine are found on the "RECOMMENDED LUBRICANTS" chart.
Distillate fuels that conform to ASTM No. 1 or No. 2 Fuel Oil or No. 1D or No. 2D Diesel Fuel Oil Specifications with a minimum cetane of 35 are the preferred fuels and provide proven maximum engine service life.
Some crude oils and blended fuels are regarded as permissible and can be used with extra fuel filters and adjusted oil change periods. However, this will result in less than maximum engine service life.
Contact your AVSpare dealer regarding the AVSpare SPECIAL INSTRUCTION titled "FUELS FOR AVSpare DIESEL ENGINES", FORMM SEHS7067, which specified requirements for other preferred and permissible fuels.
