      RE: Higher boost and E85 or Methanol BrianPetersen (Mechanical) 13 Jun 11 Regarding cam timing effects, a lot of the muscle-car engines back in the day, and sport motorcycle engines nowadays, get away with ish nominal compression ratio simply because they are running so much cam that at lower revs, the volumetric efficiency is lower. And methanol is the safest motor fuel, because it is much less flammable than gasoline (a fact that has led to its adoption by car racing leagues). ***please note that major car racing leagues, like Indy, are now switching to ethanol – cz*** On the other hand, ethanol is less chemically toxic than methanol, and it carries more energy per gallon.

    Methanol is cheaper than gasoline, but when the increased fuel consumption is taken into account the cost per mile for methanol is substantially higher. Even with an optimized engine, methanol delivers only about 60% of the fuel mileage of gasoline limiting a vehicle's driving range unless the size of the fuel tank is nearly doubled.   Methanol has only half the energy content per gallon of gasoline. Ethanol is two-thirds the intensity of gasoline. However, a fuel cell powered vehicle is at least twice the efficiency of an internal combustion engine, so the tank storage problem would be solved with a direct methanol fuel : Patrick Takahashi.

As an automotive fuel, methanol initially looks unpromising—its energy content, 64, Btu per gal, is about half that of gasoline. The values for gasoline and ethanol are , Btu per gal.

Divided into four parts, the book begins with a detailed account of current production methods and their economics. Methanol (CH3OH) is a liquid chemical used in thousands of everyday products, including plastics, paints, cosmetics and fuels.

Methanol is also an energy resource used in the marine, automotive, and electricity sectors, and an emerging renewable energy resource. Some of our current initiatives are supporting the development of the methanol.

Methanol is the primary alcohol that is the simplest aliphatic alcohol, comprising a methyl and an alcohol group. It has a role as an amphiprotic solvent, a fuel, a human metabolite, an Escherichia coli metabolite, a mouse metabolite and a Mycoplasma genitalium metabolite.

Methanol is an even better automotive fuel when used in combination with fuel-cell technology, says Paul Erickson, assistant professor in mechanical engineering at the University of California, Davis. Jiri George Drobny, in Fluoroelastomers Handbook (Second Edition), Abstract.

The automotive fuel systems have to deliver highly flammable fluids from the tank to the engine and then back with precision and safety. It contains many elastomeric components, such as O-rings, grommets, gaskets, hose and tubing, tank components, filling systems, and fuel pump.

This book details state-of-the-art fuel cell systems incorporating methanol reformers as the source of purified hydrogen (rather than compressed hydrogen). Beginning with an overview of PEM fuel cells, the book discusses the various technical approaches to methanol reforming and hydrogen cturer: Pan Stanford.

Get this from a library. Methanol as an automotive fuel: with special emphasis on methanol-gasoline blends. [A Landman; United States. Department of Transportation. Office of Systems Engineering.] -- This report reviews the available information on methanol as related to its potential use as an automotive fuel.

Information gaps critical to assessment and future. This specification covers the requirements for automotive fuel blends of methanol and gasoline for use in ground vehicles equipped with methanol-capable flexible-fuel, and dedicated methanol spark-ignition engines.

Fuel produced to this specification contains 51 % to 85 % by volume methanol. This fuel is sometimes referred to at retail as “M”. Methanol is used as a gasoline component or in the form of ether (MTBE) in gasoline and Fatty Acid Ester (FAME) in diesel.

High concentration methanol blends, such as M85 is used in special Flexible Fuel Vehicles (FFVs). Methanol is used in China. methanol First off the NHRA rule book (which I'm sure the FIA rulebook says the same) states Methanol must be A or AA grade and at least % pure.

If you are racing in a class that has fuel check, it will not pass according to that standard. methanol is a anhydrous compound meaning it "Readily" accepts moisture/water.

In the long run, methanol should be used in its pure form, as M, because of its superior environmental benefits. Taking today's methanol price of 40 to 45 cents per gallon and adding 20 to 22 cents per gallon for distribution, retail markup, and fuel taxes (slightly lower than for M85 because an M vehicle will require more gallons to travel the same mileage) yields a current.

Low molecular weight alcohols may be used alone or in combination with gasoline, but either usage presents its own unique set of advantages and. Methanol (M) blended with petrol and used in the existing BS-IV standard cars reduces carbon dioxide emission, a study conducted by Pune-based Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI.

Various alcohols are used as fuel for internal combustion first four aliphatic alcohols (methanol, ethanol, propanol, and butanol) are of interest as fuels because they can be synthesized chemically or biologically, and they have characteristics which allow them to be used in internal combustion general chemical formula for alcohol fuel is C n H 2n+1 OH.

Methanol is harder to ignite than gasoline and burns cooler, making it less of a fire hazard. It's also miscible in water, and would likely dilute and biodegrade in a spill. As an automotive fuel, methanol is most commonly discussed in terms of M85 fuel, which has 85% methanol mixed with unleaded gasoline.

Some allow only gas-station pump fuel while others specify a certain brand of race-grade gasoline, oxygenated gasoline, methanol, or ethanol/ gasoline mixes such as E At the end of the day, you need to understand that an optimal result depends on knowing the best air/fuel ratio required for that particular fuel, so you can successfully.

The proceedings of this timely symposium on "Future Automotive Fuels - Prospects, Performance, and Perspective" are reported in this book. We hope that it will serve not only as a permanent record of the papers and discussions, but also as a stimulus and inspiration for ideas, research, and development in the vital field of automotive fuels.

Methanol will tolerate a lot more compression than most grades of petrol based racing fuel, so engines optimised to methanol might have very high dome pistons that interfere with flame travel and in fact could cause some turbulence that divides the chamber with a squish area in the middle of the camber.Direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) market have applications spread across multiple industries.

Major end-use industries include electronics, automotive and industrial. Direct methanol fuel cell have different types of applications, viz., stationary applications, portable applications and transportation applications.
