THE APPLICATION OF OIL/WATER EMULSIONS AS A DIESEL ENGINE FUEL

The results show that emulsified fuels can provide a means of reducing the specific fuel consumption of a diesel engine without the penalty of increasing the exhaust emissions, and, in a given set of circumstances, the exhaust gas emissions can be substantially reduced. Additionally, although quantitative data from the engine are not yet available, previous experience with emulsified fuels applied to boiler plant shows that the combustion is cleaner. If the extrapolation is valid, it is possible that the use of emulsified fuels could enable an engine to burn a heavier grade of fuel than would otherwise be possible. Order from BSRA as No. 54,758.
