INVESTIGATION OF THE BEHAVIOR OF METHANOL AS AN ENGINE FUEL. RESEARCH REPORT NO. 45151
In principle, methanol may be used as a substitute fuel and as mixing component for the dilution of Otto engine fuels. Its use has advantages and disadvantages in all fields, from supply to utilization. If methanol is to be used for the operation of Otto engines, vehicles must be adapted, and the supply system must be modified. For methanol/fuel mixtures, solutions to the important problem of demixing must be found. The study starts out from the assumption that methanolis available in Germany in sufficient quantities, and that supply is ensured everywhere in the country. citation 05:019127)
