    The essential how-to book on making and using ethanol as an alternative renewable fuel. About the Author Richard Freudenberger was research director with Mother Earth News, managing the Alcohol Fuel Program and developing solar and renewable solar and energy projects/5(20). The relationship between gasoline composition and vehicle hydrocarbon emissions: a review of current studies and future research needs. The purpose of this paper is to review current studies concerning the relationship of fuel composition to vehicle engine-out and tail-pipe emissions and to outline future research needed in this area. A Cited by: These alcohols can be used in internal combustion engines as alternative fuels. Butane has another advantage: it is the only alcohol-based motor fuel that can be transported readily by existing petroleum-product pipeline networks, instead of only by tanker trucks and railroad cars. [citation needed] Ammonia. Ammonia (NH 3) can be used as fuel. The use of bioethanol in the transport sector can contribute to mitigate the greenhouse gas emissions of the vehicles. To achieve this goal, together with a positive energy balance in global productive process of ethanol (well to tank), it is important that adding ethanol to gasoline does not cause a worsening of the efficiency of the internal combustion engine (tank to wheel).Cited by: 7.

Calorimetric Determination of Energy Content of Alcohol fuels and Blends with Kerosene. In-Use Passenger Car Emissions.

The in-use emissions from passenger cars exceed the new car standards mandated by law. Nonetheless, emissions continue to decrease in spite of high tampering rates and fuel switching (that is, using leaded fuel in engines developed to run on unleaded fuel). Impact of alcohol–gasoline fuel blends on the performance and combustion characteristics of an SI engine Article in Fuel 89(10) October with.

Furthermore, the effects of blended fuels on engine performance were investigated and results showed that methanol–gasoline blends presents the highest volumetric efficiency and torque; ethanol–gasoline blends provides the highest brake power, while ethanol–methanol–gasoline blends showed a moderate level of volumetric efficiency, torque and brake power between both methanol–gasoline and ethanol–gasoline blends; gasoline Cited by: temperature when the engine was run on diesel fuel.

This may be due to the oxygen content of kerosene, which improves combustion and thus may increase the exhaust gas temperature (Sethi and Salariya, ). The variation of brake power with rated load is shown in Fig. Brake power increased with increase in engine load for all fuel blends. Various alcohols are used as fuel for internal combustion first four aliphatic alcohols (methanol, ethanol, propanol, and butanol) are of interest as fuels because they can be synthesized chemically or biologically, and they have characteristics which allow them to be used in internal combustion general chemical formula for alcohol fuel is C n H 2n+1 OH.
