Abstract:

A laboratory-based fuel mixture preparation system has been developed that is capable of generating a wide range of fuelair mixtures, including production of a premixed, prevaporized homogeneous charge, beginning with liquid gasoline fuel. This system has been developed to allow the study of the effects of fuelair mixture preparation characteristics on engine combustion, in-cylinder pressure, and exhaust emissions. The objectives of this study were 1 to develop a fueling system capable of producing a wide variety in the characteristics of the fuelair mixture, and 2 to study the trends in the emissions and combustion behavior with AF of a carbureted engine, and the engine provided with a premixed, prevaporized, and homogeneous airfuel mixture.
