Due to the worldwide efforts toward improved air quality, increased fuel efficiency, and energy security, interest in alternative motor vehicles fuels has risen sharply. Examining rapidly advancing gaseous fuel technologies, this sate-of-the-art publication highlights current developments in diesel engine conversion and natural gas, discusses environmental considerations and infrastructure requirements, and explores the use of fuel injection and dynamics optimization. Partial contents include: performance and cyclic variability of natural gas fuelled heavy duty engines; low emissions approaches for heavy-duty gas-powered urban vehicles; an examination of the ignition delay period in dual fuel engines; electrically actuate injectors for gaseous fuels; assessment of "first generation" propane conversion equipment and more.
