COMBUSTION CHARACTERISTICS OF DIESEL FUEL BLENDS CONTAINING USED LUBRICATING OIL

An experimental program was conducted to determine the effect of burning used lubricating oil mixed with fuel oil in a single cylinder Diesel engine. The used lubricating oil-fuel oil ratios used in this study were 2.5%, 5%, 10%, and 15% used lubricating oil by volume. The effect of burning these blends on unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen is reported along with a comparison to baseline values for pure Diesel fuel. The general condition of wear in the engine along with deposit formation and anaysis is reported. The effect of the used lubricating oil on thermal efficiency and BSFC is shown. /GMRL/
