Document Description
The goal of this project is to address issues relating to the impacts of using a broader range of natural gas compositions on vehicles, such as those that would be expected with greater introduction of gases with higher or lower wobbe than gases traditionally used in California. This project involves evaluation of the impact of various NG compositions on the performance and emissions of NG-powered heavy and medium-duty vehicles. Research activities will include modifying test protocols from a previous PIER-funded research project as needed, identifying and obtaining vehicles/engines to test, selecting natural gas blends to test, obtaining gases, testing, and data analysis. Testing will address issues such as the impact of the different LNG blends on fuel economy/CO2, operability, and emissions of air pollutants.
