Review on Performance of Spark Ignition Engines Running through Various Alternative Fuels

Ravi Nandal, Sunil Dhingra

Abstract


Several alternatives have been recently proposed for replacing gasoline fuel and use of alcohols gasoline blends in spark ignition engines. Many investigations have been carried out primarily focused on using alternative fuels. To find out a low cost and environment friendly fuel for transport industry has always put the difficulties for automobile experts. The question is how to use the various alcohols and other alternatives more effectively. How much  brake power and brake thermal efficiency can imporved by use of alcohols like methanol (M), ethanol (E), n-butanol (nB), iso-butanol (iB) and other alternatives acetone (AC) etc. How to optimize the vehicle mileage  range with use of alcohols-gasoline blends as compared to pure gasoline. Objective  of this review is to present the future prospects of different alternative fuels and their combinations with each other in the existing SI engines without modifications.
