Eni, Fiat test low-carbon dioxide vehicle fuel

Eni SPA and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) are developing a high-alcohol vehicle fuel that they say can lower exhaust emissions of carbon dioxide by up to 3% under Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedures, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to Oil & Gas Journal.

Working under a research contract they entered in 2017, the companies have completed an initial test of the fuel in five rental cars in Milan.

The vehicles ran on “A20” gasoline, which contains 15% methanol and 5% bioethanol.

During the 13-month test, the cars were rented about 9,000 times and traveled 50,000 km without experiencing problems.

Eni and FCA are working to increase the renewable content of the hydrocarbon component of A20.

The A20 formula is designed to reduce direct and indirect CO2 emissions. It’s compatible with gasoline vehicles sold since 2001.
