Stored as liquid or in solid-state storage like metal hydrides). A broad research and development on different aspects comprising hydrogen production, storage, and use in vehicular and fuel cells will improve its practicability and acceptance. 4 Ethers Ethers are oxygenating fuel that improves the combustion efficiency. Dime­ thyl ether is the commonly used blending component in gasoline fuel. Moreover, DME is a potential alternative fuel that can be used in engines as well as onboard hydrogen generation fuel cells.

8 Piston top of diesel-fueled engine. 9 Piston top of vegetable oil fueled engine. these vegetable oils caused carbon deposit buildups and sticking of piston rings with extended operation. German et al. (1985) conducted field trial tests using six John Deere and Case tractors by averaged 1300 hours of operation. Carbon deposits in the combustion chamber were greater for the tractors fueled with sunflower oil/ diesel (50:50) than for those fueled with a sunflower oil/diesel fuel blend (25:75). All the test engines that ran with vegetable oil/blends had more carbon buildup than diesel fuel.

Also, the aromatics are good oxidation resistant. On the other hand, resistance to oxidation of vegetable oils is remarkably affected by their fatty acid composition. The quantity of free fatty acids predominantly affects the flash point of vegetable oils and hence its ignition characteristics. The type of fatty acids contained in vegetable oil depends on the plant species and on the growth conditions of the plant. The degree of unsaturation (number of double bonds) determines the oxidation stability.
