Designing Fuels Compatible with Reformers and Internal Combustion Engines 2004-01-1926

Because reformer technology can be used in conjunction with advanced internal combustion engine technology, it is important to be able to formulate fuels that are compatible with both reformers and ICEs
It has been found that most hydrocarbon species typically present in gasoline can be reformed with relative ease. The exception is that olefinic species of carbon number 6 and above are relatively much harder to reform. It is shown how a reformer compatible gasoline fuel with high octane can be blended.
For Diesel fuels, synthetic ‘Gas to Liquid’ fuels are generally less susceptible to coking and hence superior to petroleum-derived fuels, for use with an onboard reformer.
