Effects of Diesel Fuel Composition on Exhaust Emissions From Di Diesel Engine-Study of the Use of Light Cycle Oil as a Component of Diesel Fuel

Event: JSAE Spring Conference
An emission test was performed in a DI diesel engine to evaluate the use of light cycle oil (LCO) as a component of diesel fuel. Most test fuels contained a kind of some LCOs which had varied ranges of the distillation and their performances compared with that of conventional diesel fuel. In this test, although the total aromatic hydrocarbons had no effect on particulate emissions, the poly-aromatic hydrocarbons significantly affected on SOF in the emissions. Furthermore, to keep the cetane number, the gaseous emissions became same level on any fuels.
