Alcohol on Performance Si Engine

Pankaj Kalwade


India is a developing country with an increasing workforce. A large part of transportation, movement etc depends on SI engines. Even agriculture today is largely dependent on SI engines. However in recent past we have witnessed a rapid increase in petrol prices. This price rise has not only affected commuters but also farmers and industries. Today’s fuel research is completely based on finding alternative fuel, however more availability of heat from fuel is not acceptable. It is the ability to transform into mechanical work that matters the most. Meanwhile until some substitute is chalked out, researchers are concentrating on petrol blends (generally alcohol blended). A very little work has been done on higher alcohol (butanol, pentanol, propanol) blended with petrol. The objective of this paper is to provide a thorough literature review on the current status of higher alcohol blends on performance characteristics in SI engine and to guide the continuity study of improving performance characteristics techniques using higher alcohol blends with petrol.
