Straight vegetable oils may be a promising alternative to fossil diesel fuel. Fuels to be used in compression ignition engines have to meet several specifications, including the requirement of a certain ignition characteristic. The ignition characteristic is described by the cetane number of a fuel and measured using engine or constant volume combustion chamber device based methods. However, none of these standardized methods is directly applicable for straight vegetable oils. As a result cetane numbers of vegetable oils with the same origin and indicated in literature can vary by several cetane number units. (10 Seiten)
