Fuel Structure Effects on the Performance and Emissions of Spark Ignition Engines
Published January 01, 1988 by Institution of Mechanical Engineers in United Kingdom
The effect of fuel structure on engine performance was assessed by employing novel chemical structures containing oxygen and/or nitrogen atoms. These were tested as petrol additives and extenders to improve octane number. Fuel characteristics were studied using a single cylinder, variable compression ratio engine. Further tests were done using a normal four-stroke, four cylinder, spark ignition engine, measuring fuel economy, exhaust emissions, and power output.
