New Fuels for New Engines
The final report was published in January 2001 as volume 6 in the Automotive Fuels Survey series of IEA AMF/AFIS under the title "Fuels for HCCI engines". It describes homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) operation in four-stroke, two-stroke and free piston engines. The relation between fuel characteristics and HCCI operation is discussed. The report contains an extensive list of references and also lists organisations working on HCCI engines. Outside AMF the report has been distributed within the Clean Diesel III consortium, co-ordinated by SwRI in the USA.
