Experimental Investigations on Methanol 5%+Ethanol-Gasoline Mixtures Operated Single Cylinder S I Engine 2004-28-0036

Performance, combustion and emissions investigations relating to the use of Methanol 5% + Ethanol blends in a spark ignition engine are described in this paper. The engine used for experimental purpose is Enfield motorcycle engine of 13.4 Kw (18 hp). A new online multi liquid fuel mixing system has been developed for perfect mixing [1] and hence found better for investigating effects of various Methanol 5%+ Ethanol Gasoline blends (M5E5, M5E10, M5E15, M5E20) hence enhances engine performance and reduction in exhaust emissions could experimentally results. Performance tests conducted with this system and showed considerable performance improvement in power output and in thermal efficiency, as well as substantial reduction in BSFC, HC, CO and NOx emissions.
