Development of an aircraft fuel tank nitrogen system to suppress fire and explosion has been underway for several years. As work progressed it was learned that such a system could also reduce contamination in the fuels. Reduction of contamination will reduce fuel system component malfunctioning, improve aircraft performance, and possibly eliminate the need for fuel additives and exotic fuels.
