16 May 2018

This course provides a thorough introduction to gasoline and diesel fuel technology and how fuel specifications are evolving to meet vehicle and environmental needs.  It combines broad overviews of the background and future trends with sufficient technical detail for those actively involved with today's specification issues.

Presentations cover fundamentals of fuel combustion in gasoline and diesel engines, and how vehicles are evolving to provide lower emissions and fuel consumption: fuel specifications, their purpose and how they are developed; the tests used to measure fuel properties and how specifications are changing driven by vehicle developments and regulatory pressures including biofuels: an overview of refining processes, and the use of additives. The future outlook for alternative vehicles and fuels, as well as conventional vehicle developments will also be addressed.

Please note: a laptop and up-to-date version of Office would be an advantage in order to engage in market data; however it is not essential.

What you will learn

  • Gasoline and diesel fuel performance in the engine including their effects on exhaust emissions.
  • How specifications and other regulations are developed and used to define fuel performance.
  • How fuels are refined and blended to meet fuel specifications including the use of additives.
  • Environmental issues and how vehicles and fuels are changing to respond to these, including the practicalities of using biofuels in gasoline and diesel.
  • How vehicles and fuels are expected to evolve in the future.

Manager's Return on Investment

Upon completion of this course your employees will understand:

  • The importance of fuel specifications, their limitations and how to ensure that fuel is 'fit for purpose' in the market.
  • How specifications are set and current challenges to produce new test procedures and limit values.
  • An overview of how gasoline and diesel are produced including a simple blending exercise.
  • Fundamentals of engine operation and exhaust emissions, and the importance of fuels in maintaining good operation.
  • Future vehicle developments that will drive the choice and specifications of future fuels.
  • How environmental pressures drive specification changes and the regulation and practicalities of biofuels in gasoline and diesel fuels.
