Abstract

Ever since the Industrial Revolution took off in the 18th century, vast quantities of fossil fuels have been used to power the economy and deliver unprecedented affluence to huge numbers of people. Petroleum, coal, and natural gas are major fossil fuels. Petrol or gasoline is a transparent liquid obtained from petroleum and it is extensively used as fuel in internal combustion engines. Octane rating is used as a standard measure for evaluating the performance of spark ignition engines fuel. The higher the octane rating, the more compression the fuel can withstand before detonating. There are a number of views on the advantages and disadvantages of these fuels, such as dispute to the life-cycle emissions and the impact on performance. The aim of this study is to identify the exhaust emissions for six commercially available fuels in Malaysia, Petronas Primax 95, Petronas Primax 97, Petron Blaze 95, Petron Blaze 97, Shell FuelSave 95, and Shell V-Power 97. This study involves exhaust emission measurement with exhaust gas analyzer and monitoring of onboard computer using scanner tool.
