Re: Question about octane fuel requirements for DB601A and DB601N engines for the Bf109E

John,

Thanks. So for an aircraft to have the designation Bf109E-4/N (or E-3/N) it would have had to have had a 601N engine, and the dead give away from photos would be a "100" in the fuselage octane triangle. Is that correct? I'm concerned only with the period to the end of 1940.

Regards,
