Vehicle Application of Auxiliary Cold Start System with the Fuel Distributor and the Extra Electronic Fuel Injector 2010-36-0190
Along the last thirty years one of the challenges is to develop an engine working with ethanol with the same performance and characteristics of gasoline engines functioning at low temperatures. In Brazil the production expansion of flex fuel engines is the main motivation for technology development and research to improve the engine cold start and functioning, when using ethanol. The use of gasoline as an auxiliary in the cold start system is now the main characteristic of this system. In this work the performance of a new cold start system is analyzed. Tests were performed in a vehicle and the results show the potential of the new technology.
