The ratios of heat of vaporization to heat of combustion show that for a given energy output, methanol requires Copyright © 2004 Marcel Dekker, Inc. 0 times as much heat to vaporize the fuel [45]. Typically alcohols are blended 5–10 vol% with gasoline for use in existing vehicles with no modifications. Conventional cars cannot operate on alcohol-rich fuels without drastic modifications. IX. PROPERTIES OF TBA The typical properties of tertiary-butyl alcohol (TBA), as reported in various studies [6,10,11,13,18,20,32,36], are listed in Table 10.

Vapor Pressure In addition to the effect of MTBE on gasoline octane numbers, there are other properties of MTBE that influence the performance of gasolines. Most notable are the Reid vapor pressure (RVP) and distillation temperatures, which are used to control both hot and cold drivability performance. Petroleum refiners have been using increased amounts of butanes in the United States. Butane addition increases both the octane number and the RVP of the gasoline. 5-psi increase in the RVP over the last decade [29].

Considering that commercial MTBE contains less than 500 ppm water, a 15% MTBE–gasoline blend containing normally 75 ppm water is well below hazing condition. , a gasoline containing 15% MTBE was found to have 520 ppm of water compared to 190 ppm water for a gasoline sample Copyright © 2004 Marcel Dekker, Inc. having no MTBE. MTBE–gasoline blends are not as hygroscopic as alcohol–gasoline blends [34]. F. Effect on Exhaust Emissions The effect of MTBE blending with gasoline on the exhaust emissions from internal combustion engines has been studied using different MTBE concentrations and with different composition of gasoline blends [35].
