Abstract
The NRC 1990 Diesel Fuel and various blends of No. 6 and No. 2 diesel fuels were employed in a 12-cylinder Bombardier 251 marine diesel engine equipped with deep bowl pistons during 72 hour low temperature idling tests and 500 hr endurance tests. The 1990 fuel did not cause operational problems under any of the conditions investigated. Although there was a buildup of carbon during 72 hour idling tests with blended fuels these deposits were burned off in a reasonable time when the engine was run at 75% of rated load. During a 500 hour endurance test with a number of exhaust valves failed at approximately 450 hours due to high temperature corrosion.
