A STUDY ON THE RATIONAL UTILISATION OF FUELS IN PRIVATE TRANSPORT (RUFIT)

The RUFIT study aims to provide information on the complex inter-relationship between energy economy, fuel quality and emission standards. Vehicle fuel consumption may be decreased by designing engines to use higher octane number fuel, but there will be an opposing increase in the energy used in manufacturing gasoline to the higher quality. This report presents the results of a Concawe study to evaluate the crude requirements and refining costs of manufacturing gasolines at different octane quality and lead levels. /TRRL/
