Standard Specification for Gasoline-like Test Fuel for Compression-Ignition Engines
|Publication Date:||1 January 2021|
|ICS Code (Liquid fuels):||75.160.20|
This specification covers the requirements of test fuels suitable for use in certain gasoline compression-ignition
The GCI test fuels described by this specification are only intended for use by engine and vehicle manufacturers in the continuing development of appropriately designed compression-ignition
GCI engines include only those engines that directly inject fuel into the combustion chamber, and rely on autoignition of the fuel to initiate combustion part or all the time. Although various combustion strategies may be used depending on the fuel and engine operating condition, the level of fuel stratification is typically decreased in GCI engines under certain operating conditions relative to traditional diesel compression-ignition
The GCI test fuels covered in this specification may contain oxygenates, such as alcohols and ethers. Recommended limits on the type and concentration of specific oxygenates are provided in Appendix X3.
This specification provides a description of GCI test fuels for automotive engines that are not currently widely available to the general public, but are being developed and require defined standard test fuels. Commercial fuels meeting the same or similar requirements as the GCI test fuels described in this specification could become available to the general public if/when such engines are introduced into commerce; however use of this specification by the general public would require significant modifications. The specification is under continuous review, which can result in revisions based on changes in fuel, automotive requirements, test methods, or a combination thereof. All users of this specification, therefore, should refer to the latest edition.
