Fleet Testing of Methanol Gasoline Blends in Public Filling Stations 870367
The objective of this work was to demonstrate the possibility of adding a 3% methanol blend to the normal gasoline for the existing vehicle population in the climatic conditions of Israel.
The fleet test was performed with the help of three public stations in which the methanol gasoline blend is sold to the general public on a voluntary basis. After ten months of operation with a sample of over 14000 vehicles the results are very encouraging and the acceptance of this blend among the drivers is very good.
The extending possibility of adding a 3% methanol blend to the normal gasoline in all the public filling stations in Israel is the principal conclusion of this work.
