Effects of Alternate Source Diesel Fuels on Light-Duty Diesel Emissions 820771

Several alternate source diesel test fuels were studied to note their effects on regulated and unregulated exhaust emissions from a 1980 Volkswagen Rabbit. Nine fuel blends were tested, including a No. 2 petroleum diesel as base, base plus coal-derived liquids (via SRC-II and EDS processes), shale oil diesel and jet fuel, and other blends of coal-derived liquids, shale oil liquids, and petroleum stocks. Analyses performed include gaseous hydrocarbons, CO, NOx, particulate mass, phenols, smoke, odor, Ames tests, BaP, and polarity profiles by HPLC. Smoke and particulate increases were generally associated with use of coal-derived liquids.
