ETHANOL AS A FUEL FOR OTTO ENGINES

AETHANOL ALS KRAFTSTOFF FUER OTTOMOTOREN

ETHANOL IS WELL SUITED AS A FUEL FOR OTTO ENGINES. BASIC DIFFERENCES FROM PRESENT DAY OTTO FUEL ARE HIGHER OCTANE NUMBER, LOWER VOLATILITY, LESS AIR REQUIREMENT AND LOWER ENERGY CONTENT, WHEREAS VISCOSITY, DENSITY AND MIXED HEATING VALUE ARE ABOUT THE SAME. THIS MEANS THAT THE COSTS OF CHANGING PRESENT DAY SERIES ENGINES TO ALCOHOL OPERATION IS KEPT WITHIN BOUNDS. TOTAL COSTS ARE PARTICULARLY FAVOURABLE IF, AS WELL AS ADAPTATION OF THE ENGINE, THE ALCOHOL FUEL IS ADAPTED TO ENGINE OPERATION BY MEANS OF ADMIXTURES.
