Green fuel: 34% reduction of hydrocarbons via hydrogen (AL+HCl) blended with gasoline at maximum torque for motorcycle operation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The concept of alternative fuel is more towards green technology which is now a necessity in the transport sector. The requirements not only refer to the reduction of hydrocarbon but an increase in engine performance is also an importance part in the research. In this study, the use of aluminum and hydrochloric acid is the basis of the chemical reaction to produce hydrogen. The application of hydrogen as a fuel in the conventional engine is through a mixture of hydrogen and gasoline (G + H2). The hydrogen supports the combustion in the combustion chamber to reduce hydrocarbon contents in the exhaust gases. The evaluation of hydrocarbon production levels in this study were set at maximum torque when the motorcycle engine is in full throttle. Chassis dynamometer test and load test contamination at L0, L1 and L2 of the engine (G + H2) produced a 34% reduction in hydrocarbons. This is better than using the engine (G). During the tests L0, L1 and L2, the average hydrocarbon gas readings decreased by 58.2%, 27.4% and 16.7% to 46 ppm, 85 ppm and 95 ppm respectively versus 110 ppm, 117 ppm and 114 ppm. This study has shown that generated hydrogen (AL + HCl) is a better alternative in controlling air pollution which has become an increasingly critical aspect for the local and international motoring industry.
