E-diesel evaluated

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

An evaluation study of E-diesel is presented. Results of side-by-side in-field tests conducted on combines and tractors running on E-diesel containing 10% ethanol shows a 3 to 5% increase in fuel usage that can be attributed directly to a 4% drop in fuel energy content. Calculations indicate that the drop in power causes a timeliness penalty of less than 1%. The results of the analysis of oil samples taken from vehicles shows no abnormal wear.
