Izquierdo, L., Marques, G., and Balieiro, V., "Experimental Tests Evaluation with Biodiesel from Residual Frying Oil - The Case Study of Martin Brower / Mc Donald's Fleet Truck in Brazil," SAE Technical Paper 2013-01-2451, 2013, doi:10.4271/2013-01-2451.
Studies aimed at partial or total use of renewable fuels in diesel engines has increasingly attracted the interest of the automotive industry, in particular due to its characteristics of strength, durability and greater thermal efficiency. The oil esters derived from biological sources, who receive the generic name for biodiesel, is one of the alternatives used internationally. Their physicochemical properties are similar to diesel oil for providing an acceptable dynamic process of preparation and combustion in the engine.This paper presents and evaluates the results of experimental tests carried out in four trucks used exclusively B20 biodiesel (20% biodiesel and 80% petroleum diesel), and one with B100 (pure biodiesel), in real operating conditions. These trucks were compared with other operated with B5 standard Brazilian diesel (5% biodiesel and 95% petroleum diesel), about their fuel consumption, injection system performance, durability lube oil and fuel filters; besides the number of occurrences of field failures.
