ALTERNATIVE FUELS TRANSPORTATION: IMPLICATIONS OF THE BROAD-CUT OPTION

Broad-cut liquid hydrocarbon fuels (roughly equivalent to equal mixtures of gasoline and diesel fuel) could lead to important fuel savings through more efficient engines and fuel production. Broad-cut fuels could be made initially from petroleum and ultimately from coal, oil shale, or other economical sources. Engines designed for the fuels might include direct-injected, stratified, turbine, Stirling, or spark-assisted diesel engines (ERA citation 03-010669)
