Supercharged F-4 engines test aviation fuel quality and measures a fuel’s performance octane number against the testing standard ASTM D909. ASTM D909 is a crucial QC test for aviation gasoline (Avgas), testing fuel performance under severe conditions in higher performance engines. Avgas is a high-octane aviation fuel used to power small aircraft and some racing cars. Avgas produced to meet specifications such as ASTM D910. The ASTM D909 test determines the knock-limited power of fuel under supercharge rich-mixture conditions.
