An experimental test method to ascertain on a laboratory Petter AV-1 test engine the efficacy of detergent additives for diesel fuels was developed. The method consists of a standard test of 36 hours duration, executed on the test engine fed with a diesel fuel to which has been added the detergent additive to be investigated. The analysis of test results, intended as evaluation of the deposits formed on some established engine members, will furnish, by comparison with the results of a similar test conducted with the same fuel without additive, the necessary indications to evaluate the detergency of the tested additive.
