EXPERIMENTS WITH NOVEL FUELS FOR DIESEL ENGINES
Engine tests were conducted with two fuels that would be considered as novel for use in diesel engines. The fuels, methanol and a water/diesel fuel emulsion, were used in this study because of their potential for reductions in exhaust emissions. The test results showed that these fuels yield no advantages over standard diesel fuel with respect to emissions of unburned hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen. Although smoke and carbon monoxide emissions were reduced with the use of the water/fuel emulsion, the same effect could also have been achieved via engine adjustment.
