Abstract

Petroleum products, especially automotive fuels are the most extensively used source of energy, everywhere in the world. The same international trend is true in India as well. Petrol, Diesel and kerosene are used in transportation, construction, industries, power generation, agriculture, household cooking and lighting in rural areas. It is generally believed that a major portion of kerosene is bypassed for adulterating other fuel products such as Gasoline and Diesel. Fuel adulteration is common everywhere including India. The fuel adulteration problem is the case in India as explained by, Shenoy (2010) referring to The National Council of Applied Economic Research (NCAER, 2005) estimated that around 38 % of kerosene diverted from its intended use, was associated with environmental pollution, problems with engine performance, and tax losses. Current paper investigates the effects of adulteration of Gasoline with kerosene on the performance characteristics of gasoline.
