The sharper regulations for diesel engine emissions lead to the requirement that both fuels and engines must be developed jointly. In the future, so-called designer fuels will help to achieve the sharper limits. In our research, conventional diesel fuel, biodiesel, Swedish low sulfur diesel fuel MK1 and a specially designed diesel fuel were compared using a DaimlerChrysler diesel engine, running the modes of the ECE 49 test cycle. The results for regulated and non-regulated gaseous emissions as well as particulate matter size distributions are reported.
