Abstract


The study conducted for observing effect of long duration utilization effect of aqueous ethanol on fuel consumption, emission, crank case oil quality and engine cleanliness on petrol start kerosene run type small SI engine coupled with an alternator running on denatured ethanol 190°proof in place of kerosene. The result indicated no significant deposition of foreign matter on carburetor component, deterioration in the crank case oil quality and shoot formation within the recommended change period of 100 hours. The emission of carbon monoxide (CO), nitric oxide (NO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) was found less, whereas hydrocarbon (HC) found more than petrol run SI engines. The operation of engine on denatured 190° proof ethanol was found satisfactory.
