One too many this lunch time - don't understand a word!!!!!
ALL THE NINES 99
I notice a big buy all the 9- 99 we mite hite the jacket soon hope so for everyone i can then go and buy some Teognmouth Rock lol
I tend to agree AD, absurd it may be but so are Diesel Particulate Filters and EGR systems on cars, but that hasn't stopped them from being mandated on vehicles due to Euro 5 and 6 regulations. Something will be next as internal combustion engines aren't going away. If enough 'influential' people are lobbied and palms crossed, who knows, emulsion could be seen as a next future step in eliminating particulates (at extra cost to the motorist with no choice of course!). I think the sulnox system is a 'made at the fuel pump of the vehicle' type of emulsion with a very short shelf life (enough time to get to the injectors). Purely speculation, of course but in a few years time who knows, QFI or the company that buys them out, the then 'World Leaders in emulsion technologies',may be paid a wedge load of cash by governments in consultation fees to tell them whether it's a goer or not! ;-)
prep H, Can't say I'd heard of this outfit before, but the concept is absurd. And their saying they're 'talking to Cambridge University' is just smoke and mirrors. I'd be more impressed if they said they were talking with the University of East Anglia, Norwich, where the first 'School of Environmental Sciences' was founded, back in the sixties. Sure, diesel / water emulsions can be made, and NoX and particle emissions are reduced. Plus sometimes (though now not necessarily talking emulsions) adding very fine quantities of highly-atomised water into the air-inlet systems of common-rail diesels can increase performance. People in the truck-racing or tractor-pulling world know about this. The maximum shelf-life of a diesel / water emulsion is very, very limited. And also fearfully temperature-dependent. It can get cold in Britain. Finally (quite unlike MSAR or MSAR2) making such a mixture means it's more expensive than the base-stock, ie diesel. The whole idea's a non-starter.
This Sulnox mob certainly keep getting publicity http://www.transportengineer.org.uk/transport-engineer-news/crack-emissions-with-emulsions-says-fuel-company/64646/ .. Probably as they are desparate for business and aren't in any NDA's with anyone. Not of any competitive interest to QFI but If road diesel emulsions do kick off for environmental gains and pressure, I'm sure we know a company with expertise in making and performance testing a really stable emulsion..
