Methanol Blended Fuel Investigations on an Injected Single Cylinder Spark Ignition Engine 2005-26-031

Performance, combustion and emission characteristics relating to the use of 20% methanol and 80% gasoline in a spark ignition engine are described in this paper. The engine used for experimental purpose is a motorcycle engine of 13.4 kW (18 hp). A new online multi liquid fuel mixing system has been developed for perfect mixing and hence found to be better for investigating effects of Methanol - Gasoline blend (M20) which enhances engine performance and reduces exhaust emissions. Performance tests conducted under Throttle Body Injection (TBI) showed considerable performance improvement in power output and in thermal efficiency, as well as substantial reduction in BSFC, HC, and CO emissions than that of a conventional carbureted engine. The results of this work can contribute to improve the air pollution in the urban area.
