The relationship between automotive diesel fuel characteristics and engine performance

21 Sep 1986
This report discusses the influence of diesel fuel characteristics on emissions and performance, with particular emphasis on the effect of changing fuel properties on exhaust emissions. However, owing to the known highly complex nature of the interaction between engines and diesel fuel and the fact that more than one fuel property can be linked to emissions, the report discusses individual emissions species in the conjunction with the range of fuel properties known to influence those emissions.
