THE USE OF METHANOL-PETROL MIXTURES AND OF PURE METHANOL IN PASSENGER CARS

DER EINSATZ VON METHANOL-BENZIN-GEMISCHEN UND REINMETHANOL IN PERSONENKRAFTWAGEN

The authors report on investigations concerning the suitability of methanol as fuel or fuel component in comparison with petrol (gasoline). The advantages of methanol with regard to increased power output and energy utilisation and also the reduced pollutant emission are emphasized. The introduction of methanol could be effected by means of a fuel mixture, which would also produce gains by raising the octane rating. The progress of a vehicle fleet test involving 45 cars shows that the problems associated with such a fuel mixture are soluble. Reference is also made to other research projects. /TRRL/
