Today, more than ever, the subject of fuels and engines arouses keen interest and provokes lively debate among specialists and the general public. This book describes in extensive detail the new technologies that are currently in use or under development that are designed to provide high-quality fuels and ensure their optimal use in the engines used to power automobiles, trucks, aircraft, and ships. All types of fuels are covered: gasoline, diesel fuels, liquefied petroleum gas, natural gas, biofuels, jet fuels, and fuels for special uses. The specific situations encountered in each region of the world, including the United States, Europe, Japan, and the developing countries, are analyzed and compared, with a focus on energy, economics, and politics. This book is a scientific work, yet easy to read; it is objective, yet actively involved. It is thus an excellent reference work for those seeking pertinent, reliable, and comprehensive information on the subject of fuels and engines.
