Chemmotological Problems of the Production and Use of Alternative Motor Fuels

  • V. E. Emel’yanov
Chemmotology of Fuel

The advantages and problems of using alternative motor fuels, viz., E85 (85% ethanol +15% gasoline) and natural gas, are discussed. It is shown that efficient utilization of alternative motor fuels is impossible without solving chemmotological problems pertaining to safety, performance reliability, and improvement of the ecological suitability. The problems that remain to be solved in order to broaden the use of alternative fuels are outlined.
