Abstract: From the reference of past few decades it is believed that crude oil petroleum products are becoming scarce and very costly. As technology is advancing fuel economy of engine is getting improved and will continue to Improve. Also, there is an enormous increase in variety of vehicles which has started dictating the demand for fuel. Gasoline and diesel will become scarce and very expensive in near future. With the increased use and depletion of fossil fuels, there is an almost need to find an alternative fuel, so that some of the problems can be minimized. An effort has been made to use an alternate fuel in 4-stroke spark ignition engine. Another reason motivating the development of an alternate fuel for an S.I engine is the concern over the emission problems of use of gasoline. Combined with the other air polluting systems the large no. of automobiles is a major contributor to the air quality problems of the world. The engine used for alternate fuel is a modified S.I engine, which was originally designed for petrol fuelling. An extensive research and development is done by using acetylene as an alternative fuel which is a gas, obtained from combination of calcium carbide and water. For this, particular storage gas cylinder is designed with certain mechanical elements. Maximum performance and investigation for obtaining the efficiencies can be done using this alternative fuel and hence analysis based on performance is carried out. Also Comparison study of petrol and acetylene, CNG and acetylene is accomplished.
Keywords: Alternative Fuel: Acetylene, valve timing for petrol and acetylene, emission, Performance analysis, efficiencies of Acetylene and petrol.
