Additives are fuel-soluble chemicals added in small amounts to enhance or maintain properties important to fuel performance or fuel handling. Typically, additives are derived from petroleum based raw materials and their function and chemistry are highly specialized. They produce the desired effect in the parts per million (ppm) concentration range (One ppm is 0.0001 mass percent.). 


Additives are used in varying degrees in all petroleum derived fuels, but the situation with aviation fuels is unique in that only those additives specifically approved may be added to jet fuel. Some approved additives are required to be added, some are optional, and others are approved for use only by agreement between buyer and seller.
