CONVERTING AN AGRICULTURAL TRACTOR TO BIOGAS TURBOJET OPERATION
Biogas is an excellent fuel for engines with spark ignition due to its high knock resistance. In cases where there is not enough biogas available, the pilot spray system is advantageous. The only alternations necessary in a direct injection diesel engine are limited to the gas inlet into the intake pipe and the adaptation of the engine regulation. The main problem in using biogas as a fuel lies in the space required for the tank. The author goes into the results of experiments on a converted diesel tractor. There is an electric switch on the instrument panel for switching from diesel to biogas fueling.
