This paper describes the modification and testing of a compression ignition engine using diesel and fumigated ethanol as fuel. Tests on the engine fueled with diesel only were made, and the performance evaluated to form a basis for comparison for those of ethanol-diesel dual fueling. Performance was evaluated in terms of brake thermal efficiency. Ethanol-air mixing greatly improved the performance even at the optimum injection timing for 100% diesel operation. Performance at advanced timings was better than that of diesel provided the correct fueling rates were used.
