Described is the conversion of a 16-valve, 4-cylinder light-duty automotive engine to operation on a mixture of hydrogen and carbon monoxide gaseous fuel. The engine was evaluated to determine the difference in emission levels and lean limit operation between two different fuels: M100 neat methanol and simulated dissociated methanol gaseous fuel (2H2/CO). The engine will eventually be used as a test bed for a practical, onboard methanol dissociation fuel system. Modifications made to the test engine to enhance the characteristics of 2H2/CO fuel are discussed. A description of the CA18DE test engine modified for use on M100 neat methanol is also included.
