Written for those who have an interest in or need to understand automotive fuels, SAE International offers the third edition of its best-selling Automotive Fuels Reference Book.
The first two editions of this title, published by SAE International in 1990 and 1995, have been best-selling definitive references in the industry. This long-awaited new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, yet retains the original fundamental fuels information that readers find so useful.
Authored by Paul Richards, this book includes a brief history of automotive fuels development, followed by chapters on automotive fuels manufacture from crude oil and other fossil sources. One chapter is dedicated to the manufacture of automotive fuels and fuel blending components from renewable sources. The safe handling, transport, and storage of fuels, from all sources, are covered.
In addition, “Automotive Fuels Reference Book, Third Edition,” pulls together in a single, volume, the three different but related topics of automotive fuels, fuel additives, and engines, and shows how all three areas work together. A discussion on engine fuel system development and how these different systems affect the corresponding fuel requirements is offered. Because the book meant to address the needs of global markets, fuel system technologies that only exist in the legacy fleet in some areas are included. The way in which fuel requirements are developed and specified is discussed, covering test methods from simple laboratory bench tests, through engine testing, and long-term test procedures.
