This work investigates the effect of a multifunctional additive package in the pure rape seed oil (RSO) on exhaust particulate emissions in terms of, number concentration and size distribution using a DI diesel engine. The combustion and emission performance was evaluated. A detergent based multifunctional additive package was added to the RSO. A comparison test was conducted to investigate the influence of the additive package on particulate number and size distributions using a SMPS. The...
