Abstract A serious problem concerning the development of a production model neat methanol-fueled (M100) vehicle is the inability to start such vehicles reliably at cold temperatures. A 1981 Volkswagen Rabbit, modified to operated on M100 fuel, was cold start tested at the U.S. EPA's Motor Vehicle Emissions Laboratory from March 13, 1987 to April 21, 1988. A starting system which provided faster cranking speeds, was tested alone and in combination with a manifold-mounted fuel delivery system capable of generating methanol fuel droplets at or below 5 microns in diameter. Start attempts were also made using several modified ignition systems, which provided higher energy spark, in combination with faster cranking speed and atomized fuel delivery systems.
