port injection gasoline engine, engine performance, ethanol/gasoline blend.


Currently fuel ethanol to be environmental friendly and easy to use. To determine the effect of gasoline/ethanol blend on the gasoline engine, in this research will be done used engine testing and simulation with computer software. Research done on several ethanol/gasoline blends, from gasoline, ethanol 10% and 20%. At low rpm, results from simulation same with experimental, but at high rpm results from simulation will be more high-14% compared with experimental results.
From the experiment unknown with the addition of 10% ethanol, power and fuel consumption is almost same with gasoline fuel, but when using ethanol 20% power will decrease 10% and fuel consumption increases.
