Comments:This was the third ACCESS test fuel exhaust emissions sampling flight with LaRC HU-25C. Ground test was performed yesterday and there was concern that tank three may have a leaking selector or refill valve in the crossfeed system permitting HEFA blend fuel to enter the tank and contaminate the JP-8 baseline fuel. The indication during the ground test was a rising fuel level in tank #3 when the engines were operating on HEFA blend fuel. Prior to this flight fuel remaining tank #3 was offloaded into ground storage and reserviced with pedigree JP-8.
