Synthetic fuel designated S-5 was evaluated for exhaust emissions and fuel consumption in a 6.5L diesel engine. The S-5 fuel produced substantial reduction in exhaust particulate matter compared to low-sulfur certification diesel fuel over two different transient test cycles. In general the S-5 fuel produced lower exhaust emission levels and slightly reduced brake specific fuel consumption over both test cycles.
