Influence on the Plane Engine Bearings by Using Bio-Diesel Fuel

In recent years, the use of the bio-fuel is promoted for reducing CO₂ emissions. The bio-fuel and/or the combustion products are mixed with engine oil through gap between piston ring and cylinder liner. In that case, it is feared that the mixed oil has negative influences for the plane engine bearings. The influences are decrease in seizer resistance and acceleration of corrosion. In this paper, we describe the results of seizure test and corrosion test of the plane engine bearings by using the bio-diesel fuel.
