The problem of burning coal-derived and other alternate fuels in combustion engines and turbines can be approached from two different directions: The raw fuels can be upgraded by relatively expensive and energy intensive hydrorefining, or engines can be developed which can burn cruder fuels directly, although perhaps at the cost of a reduced efficiency and increased maintenance costs. An approach to the problem of identifying the optimum compromise between these extremes is presented.
