Turbocharging is already a key part of heavy duty diesel engine technology. However, the need to meet emissions regulations is rapidly driving the use of turbo diesel and turbo gasoline engines for passenger vehicles. Turbocharged diesel engines improve the fuel economy of baseline gasoline engine powered passenger vehicles by 30-50%. Turbocharging is critical for diesel engine performance and for emissions control through a well designed exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. In gasoline engines, turbocharging enables downsizing which improves fuel economy by 5-20%.

Today’s modern diesel engines are designed with efficiency and low emissions in mind. To achieve these objectives, fuel injection system pressures have moved up in excess of 2,000 BAR. These higher pressures drive the need for fuel cleanliness levels never seen before in order to “keep running and achieve more”, i.e. meet injector life and maintenance interval expectations. In order to achieve the levels of cleanliness now required, a two-step approach to filtration is needed. Onboard filtration alone will be challenged to meet the expected levels of efficiency and life due to limitations in dirt holding capacity and compromised performance in harsh on-engine environments. This presentation will explain why bulk fuel filtration, or filtering the fuel prior to being put into use on the equipment, should be an integral part of every operation’s contamination control strategy.

A review of the published literature on the ambient storage stability of B-X/ULSD blends will be presented. Then experimental results will be presented designed to test the hypothesis that the ambient storage stability of retail B-X/ULSD blends are dependent upon fuel dissolved oxygen concentration. Possible chemical mechanisms for the observed results will be proposed.

Improving vehicular fuel efficiency is of paramount importance to the global economy. Governmental regulations, climate change and associated health concerns, as well as the drive towards energy independence, have created a technical need to achieve greater fuel efficiency. While vehicle manufacturers are focusing efforts on improved combustion strategies, smaller displacement engines, weight reduction, low friction surfaces, etc., the research involved in developing fuel efficient engine oils has been less publicized.

The focus of this session is the performance of integrated vehicle systems and the influence of driving styles and drive cycles on fuel consumption/economy. This will include how integration of vehicle components such as the powertrain, parasitics, accessories, mass elements, aerodynamics, tires, brakes, and hubs affect the overall vehicle energy and energy conversion efficiency.
