RECENT COOPERATIVE FUEL-RESEARCH PROGRESS 250001

This report deals with further progress in the cooperative fuel-research. General factors underlying starting ability are discussed and experiments showing the effect of changes in spark character and of gas leakage are described. The probable mechanism of crankcase-oil dilution is treated, and further experiments with reference to this subject are explained. One experiment deals with operation with oil as a cooling medium to obtain high jacket-temperatures. Other experiments show the effect of change in piston clearance and in the number of piston-rings employed.
Factors influencing the rate at which the diluent is eliminated from the diluted oil are shown to be of importance, and methods of examining these factors are stated.
