Abstract

This paper assesses the performance of a retrofitted bi-fuel passenger car running on enriched biogas and natural gas with a view to investigating the similarities between both fuels. A sweep test was conducted using a chassis dynamometer which simulated actual driving conditions showed that the vehicle recorded similar maximum power outputs at 55kW and 54kW for natural gas and biogas respectively while similar acceleration times from 0 to 100km/h were also recorded.
