Abstract

Statistical analysis was performed on the John Deere engine deposit ratings. Results revealed heavier deposits in most areas of the combustion chamber of the three engines fueled with the 50% sunflower oil/50% No. 2 diesel fuel blend. No detrimental engine deposits due to differences in engine size were observed. Based on this study, use of a 25% sunflower oil/75% No. 2 diesel fuel blend or a 50% sunflower oil/50% No. 2 diesel fuel blend as a substitute diesel fuel cannot be recommended.
