Abstract
The effects of fuel composition on the performance of a 12-cyclinder Bombardier 251 marine diesel engine have been examined. Seven fuels, including the NRC "1990" diesel fuel as well as other tar sands-derived fuels were used. No major operational difficulties were encountered with any of these fuels.
