The effect of biodiesel (rapeseed oil methyl ester, RME) and low sulfur fuels on the fuel consumption and emission characteristics of a diesel engine was investigated. The engine tests were carried out based on the 13-mode ECE­ 49 procedure. Particulate Matter (PM) distribution was analyzed with the state-of-the-art technique of Scanning Mobility Particle Sizing (SMPS). Compared to the base line diesel fuel, biodiesel emitted 20 to 80 % less specific CO, HC, PM, and aromatic hydrocarbons. The… CONTINUE READING
