Information materials

Engine tests
Studies of surface and interface tension of ethanol gasoline doped with new detergent additives will be performed by Willhelmy plate method. The results will be correlated with engine test performance. It has been postulated that assessment of low level additized and non additized ethanol-gasoline blends, including 10% (V/V) ethanol (1st generation from biomass fermentation or 2nd generation lingo-cellulosic) will be tested in a 60 hours simulation dynamometer engine tests following the CEC F-20-98 test procedure with Mercedes M111 test engine.
