To determine through laboratory testing how the incorporation of by-products from the production of coal-derived jet fuels in refinery streams will influence the quality and performance of gasoline and diesel fuel products.

Laboratory tests of coal-derived fuel properties, ignition characteristics, combustion and emissions, neat and in blends. Both SI and CI engine testing will be performed, including in-cylinder visualization in a Navistar International 7.3L V-8 Turbodiesel engine.
