ENGINE TECHNOLOGY FOR ALTERNATIVE FUELS

The author suggests that engine development should be directed toward utilization of alcohols as well as fuels that are basically traditional in character but tend toward lower combustion quality and toward extended boiling range. Improved but still-traditional power plants, a stratified-charge engine for broad-cut fuels, and the slow-speed diesel for heavy minimally refined fuels are suggested as the engine technologies for development toward the most advantageous use of alternative fuels.
