Abstract

How can petrol diesel and biodiesel be used to get the best fuel mileage, cut down on emissions, and obtain a peak petrol diesel to biodiesel fuel ratio? If the best ratio between diesel and biodiesel is found, then diesel fuel efficiency can be optimized for multiple diesel applications while reducing emissions. Will be split up into 5 phase, although phase 5 may not be reached. Phase 1 will be to test the fuels and what temperature they burn at to make sure the fuel doesn't burn to hot or too cold because a diesel truck runs off compression, which is when the piston compresses the fuel. Which got the information that was wanted that the fuel would gradually increases with the more diesel that is the ratio. In phase 2 and 3, the efficiency will be tested of the fuel blends by first testing the horsepower, and then the Revolutions Per Minute (RPMs) of the fuel. In phase 4 the experiment will move from the lab into the real world scenarios. The real world testing will begin by using a diesel truck to test the fuel mileage and its efficiency in the diesel engine. Phase 5 will be to test the fuel mileage and efficiency in a bus, to help make it so young children do not breathe in Carbon Monoxide, soot, and other carcinogenic gases while they ride the school bus.
