Alcohol fuels for spark-ignition engines: performance, efficiency and emissions effects at mid to high blend rates for binary mixtures and pure components

Abstract:

The paper evaluates the results of tests performed using mid- and high-level blends of the low-carbon alcohols methanol and ethanol in admixture with gasoline, conducted in a variety of test engines to investigate octane response, efficiency and exhaust emissions, including those for particulate matter. Additionally, pure alcohols are tested in two of the engines, in order to show the maximum response that can be expected in terms of knock limit and efficiency as a result of the beneficial...
