OPTIMUM AUTOMOTIVE USE OF THE COMBUSTION CHARACTERISTICS OF GAS FROM COAL-LOW POLLUTION CONSIDERATIONS
The Bureau of Mines studied the characteristics of simulated coal gas as an automotive fuel in two multicylinder vehicles in a standard and high compression-ratio engine configuration. The investigation emphasized the engine parameters necessary for optimum use of the fuel with repect to engine efficiency and low exhaust emissions.
