Predicting vapour composition and flammability in a fuel tank (Concawe Report 30.2)

18 Jan 2022

Fuel blends consisting of a mixture of gasoline, diesel fuel and ethanol—referred to as dieseline—have shown promise for use in high-compression engines. Such mixtures could be flammable in the headspace above the liquid in a vehicle fuel tank at common ambient temperatures, and it is therefore important to understand the flammability characteristics of these fuel blends.
