ANALISA PERFORMA DAN KONSUMSI BAHAN BAKAR PADA MESIN 4-TAK 113CC MENGGUNAKAN BAHAN BAKAR CAMPURAN PREMIUM DAN ETHANOL
AbstractThe vehicles in the world, especially in Indonesia, has been widely provided. As there are many vehicles, the need for fuel oil is getting bigger. The amount of petroleum is running low. This research, aims to study gasohol (gasoline-alcohol) as an alternative fuel. And this fuel, also can save fuel and increase performance when using this fuel. Gasohol is a mixture of gasoline and ethanol which is one of the solutions to reduce the level of use of fuel oil. Ethanol is a fermented fruit additive that can be used as a fuel mixture. This research learns 5 types of gasohol mixture. Namely, E10, E15, E20, E25 and E30. The results of data analysis show that the highest torque and power is in the E15 mixture. That is 8.90 Nm at 5500 rpm, and the power obtained is 5.529 kW at 6000 rpm engine speed. This is because, E15 is the right gasohol mixture if it adjusts to the octane and compression ratio. Meanwhile, the lowest fuel consumption value is found in the gasohol E10 mixture with a value of 169.78 gr / hour at 4500 rpm. In the results of the Specific Fuel Consumption, the lowest results were obtained in the mixture E0 or premium (gasoline), which is 38.76 gr / kW.h at 5500 rpm engine speed. This is because the condition of the engine has been maximized, because there is already a preparation stage starting with the engine for 5-10 minutes, so that the fuel starts to burn completely.
