Conversion of a gasoline spark ignition engine to alcohol fuel

Conversion of a gasoline spark ignition engine to alcohol fuel

ASAE Paper (81-3583): 9 pp

Simple modifications were made to a petrol engine to permit the use of alcohol fuel, including shielding the intake manifold, heating the fuel prior to carburetion, increasing carburettor jet size and advancing the timing. The engine was used to drive an irrigation pump and generator for a centre pivot irrigation system.
