Performance of Fischer-Tropsch Liquids with Oxygenates in a VW 1.9L TDI 2001-01-3521

One of the simplest approaches to eliminating refining and reducing costs of Fischer-Tropsch (FT) liquids is to use wide-boiling point cuts resulting in a fuel that has a T10 volatility similar to that of gasoline. Wider boiling point cuts may also result in fuels having larger fractions of waxy components. The role of blend stocks is important in evaluating the feasibility of using FT liquids as fuels due to these waxy components. This paper compares the performance of FT liquids, FT diesel, petroleum diesel, and multiple blended fuels in a VW 1.9L TDI to evaluate the feasibility of direct use of FT liquids.
