Compression ignition engine modifications for straight plant oil fueling in remote contexts: Modification design and short-run testing
Abstract Though many plant oils have a similar energy density to fossil diesel fuel, several properties of plant oils are considerably different from those of diesel. Engine modifications can… Expand
Durability testing modified compression ignition engines fueled with straight plant oil
Many short-run studies point to the potential for direct fueling of compression ignition engines with plant oil fuels. There is a much smaller body of work that examines the potential for these fuels… Expand
The Use of Vegetable Oil as Fuel for Distributed Power Generation in Developing Countries
This study reports an ongoing effort to investigate the degradation rate of a low-speed Listeroid diesel engine running on filtered waste vegetable oil (WVO). It aims to measure the performance, wear… Expand
