The Use of Alcohol and Gasoline in Farm Engines

The Use of Alcohol and Gasoline in Farm Engines

Date: 1907
Creator: Lucke, Charles Edward, 1876-1951 & Woodward, Sherman M. (Sherman Melville), b. 1871
Description: "Owing to the fact that there are not on the American market any engines designed especially for alcohol, the experiments so far made have been with alcohol in the gasoline and kerosene engines familiar to the American market. The purpose of these experiments is twofold: (1) To determine what can be done with alcohol in the existing engines, and (2) to learn what changes in the mechanism of the engines are necessary to secure the highest efficiency in the use of alcohol as a fuel. ...It has seemed best to publish as a Farmers' Bulletin the essential facts brought out by the experiments made, with some popular matter on the use of gas engines for farm purposes, leaving the details and the more technical results of the tests to be published later, and such publication is therefore recommended." -- p. 2

Date: 1964
Creator: Schwartz, Frank G.; Whisman, M. L.; Allbright, C. S. & Ward, C. C.
Description: From Abstract: "The data show that sulfur compounds, nitrogen compounds, polycyclics, and olefins enter into gum-forming reactions. Certain sulfur and nitrogen compounds were found to be most reactive in the gum-forming process. Results of this study indicate that the aromatic constituents of gasolines may contribute substantially and directly to gum formation."
