PERFORMANCE OF METHANOL-GASOLINE BLENDS IN A STRATIFIED CHARGE ENGINE VEHICLE

A series of driveability and chassis dynamometer tests were performed using various blends of methanol and gasoline in a stratified charge engine vehicle. The vehicle used was a 1975 Honda Civic CVCC. General conclusions are that the CVCC vehicle tested suffered only slight degradation in driveability using a 10% methanol-gasoline fuel and vehicle emissions and fuel economy are not significantly changed by use of the 10% methanol blend. /GMRL/
