Alternative automotive fuels containing, for example, alcohols and biodiesel are now well established in the global automotive energy market. Some of these fuels have a different chemical composition to fossil diesel and gasoline. This means that new chemical reactions in the fuel system can lead to a range of problems including shorter component life, reduced performance, corrosion and clogging. Automotive fuel system components have therefore been modified to take account of these differences in chemistry as the new fuels have appeared at filling stations. This new 23-page briefing examines the impact of alternative automotive fuels on fuel lines, seals and fuel injectors. Also included are case studies from Veritas, AG, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions and Afton Chemical.
