Acetylene Used as a Fuel in SI Engine

Authors(5) :-Mohammed Masood, Syed Azam Pasha Quadri, Md. Tarique Anwar, Mohammed Shazer Bari, Mohd. Abdul Rasheed

The petrol which is used as fuel in SI engine is replaced by acetylene gas, which contains pollutant less or negligible amount of pollutants. Due to increasing rates of petrol common people are facing difficulties, in order to overcome this difficulties we use acetylene gas which is cheap and easily available. Acetylene is a hydrocarbon compound and is the simplest form of alkyne. There are many gases such as LPG (liquefied petroleum gas), CNG (compressed natural gas), and LNG (liquefied natural gas). Which can be used as fuel to SI Engine, but acetylene is the cheapest and best gas when compared with them.
