Liquid Hydrogen Fueled Diesel Automobile with Liquid Hydrogen Pump
A passenger car with 2-L four-stroke turbo-diesel engine was converted into a LH2-fueled vehicle. The hydrogen fuel system consisted of a LH2tank and a high pressure LH2pump. The engine used 8 MPa H2 late direct cylinder injection and hot surface ignition. This system demonstrated the advantages of light weight and high performance as an automobile hydrogen engine. It was superior to a system using a metal hydride tank and premixture type engine.
