Performance and Emissions of a DI diesel engine Operated with LPG and Cetane Enhancing additives 2003-01-1920

Experiments were conducted to operate a direct injection (DI) diesel engine by using Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) as a main fuel. Aliphatic Hydrocarbon (AH), cetane enhancing additive and lubricating additive were also added to the LPG so that smooth operation was achieved with a wide range of engine loads. Since the lubricity of LPG is lower than the diesel fuel therefore lubricating additive was employed to enhance the lubricity of LPG blended fuel. Furthermore, prototype LPG diesel truck was developed in this work, and the mileage reached about 70,000 km without any major failure. Prototype truck has good starting, good drive-off, acceleration and braking characteristics.
