Alternate fuels have been used to fulfill the demand of fuel for engines used at various fields and also due to the decreasing petroleum fuel resources. Moreover the very low emissions norms have led to the experimentation, analysis and optimization of operating parameters of the engines run with these alternate fuels. Optimization of operating parameters to suit these alternate fuels have led to various studies and experiments.
