Description

The State of Minnesota has mandated that 20% of all gasoline is to be made up of ethanol. Before this mandate can be implemented, extensive research must be conducted to ensure compatibility of the fuel systems operating on E20 in all automobiles along with small engine and marine applications. The goal of this study was to compare the effects of E20 versus that of ElO and ASTM Test Fuel C. The E20 fuel pump project focused primarily on automotive fuel pumps, and how E20 affected the performance of the pump in terms of corrosion and endurance.
