1.1.41.2. Diesel engines

GENERAL INFORMATION

Diesel fuel on DIN EN 590. Tsetanovoye number not less than 49.

RME fuel (biodiesel fuel) on DIN 51 606.

Cars with the diesel engine can be maintained on RME fuel (A maslorastitelny metilester).

About where it is possible to refuel RME fuel, it is possible to consult in the service enterprise Volkswagen or in local autoclub.

Features of use of RME fuel

RME fuel receive from vegetable oil (mainly rapsovy oil) by chemical process at which vegetable oil and methanol by means of the catalyst turn into RME fuel.

RME fuel almost does not contain some sulfur. Therefore at combustion of this fuel almost it is not allocated sulfur dioxides.

Products of combustion contain less oxide of the carbon, not burned down hydrocarbons, – firm particles (for example, soot), than it turns out at combustion of traditional diesel fuel.

The content of all harmful substances in the fulfilled gases is less, than is provided by legislative norms.

RME fuel easily decays biologically.

RME fuel keeps sufficient fluidity to temperature approximately 10°С.

At temperature of external air is lower 10 ° With it is necessary to add diesel fuel in a fuel tank to prevent a hlopyeobrazovaniye in biodiesel fuel. The ratio of diesel and biodiesel fuel in a mix should make about 50:50.

RME fuel can be mixed in any proportion with usual diesel fuel.

Only insignificant deterioration of traction and dynamic qualities of the car can be noted.

Fuel consumption of RME can be slightly higher.

Operation in winter conditions

When using summer diesel fuel at temperature of external air is lower 0 ° With violations in operation of the engine as fuel because of loss of paraffin becomes viscous can to meet.

Therefore during the cold period of year use winter diesel fuel which depending on its brand provides continuous work of the engine at temperature to-15 ° With or to-22 ° Page.

In the countries with unlike climatic conditions there are other grades of diesel fuel which generally have excellent from above-stated temperature borders of their application. Necessary information on grades of diesel fuel used in this country it is possible to receive in the service enterprise Volkswagen or at fuelling stations.
