Abstract

Six tractors were fueled with sunflower oil/diesel fuel blends for an average of 1300 hours of field service. The most carbon deposits were found in engines fueled with a 50/50 sunflower oil/diesel fuel blend. Less carbon was found in engines using a 25/75 sunflower oil/diesel fuel blend. All test engines had more carbon accumulation than normally seen with diesel fuel operation.
