AUTOMOTIVE DIESEL ENGINES--FUEL COMPOSITION VS PARTICULATES
Forty-six experimental diesel fuels have been tested in a modern automotive diesel engine, and the effect of fuel characteristics on particulate emissions, gaseous emissions, and fuel economy has been studied. Regression analysis of results established a relationship between particulate emissions and two fuel characteristics: (1) aromatic content and (2) volatility, especially as described by the 90% boiling point. Particulates could be reduced by lowering either aromatic content or 90% boiling point.
