Abstract

Vehicle modernization has been developed towards the growing necessities of speed, power, efficiency, ergonomics, and design etc. The requirements, nowadays of environmental safety and operational efficiency of vehicles are being brought to the forefront. The aim of this work is to increase efficiency and reduce the harmful environmental impact of automobile transport by improving the quality of fuels during its operation. The improvement of the quality of fuels by means of highly-effective additives is the most rapidly implemented and lowcost method. According to the settled requirements of the properties of additives and the analysis of the catalytic and physicochemical properties of the substances, the universal content of the additive to gasoline and diesel fuel was found and the technology of its production was proposed. In addition, the additive was thoroughly tested in the laboratory, test bench, traffic operation and experimental-industrial checkout. It was found that the application of the additive in minor quantities significantly improves operational and environmental properties of fuels and engine characteristics. Keywords: multifunctional additive, carbonization suppression, fuel consumption, environmental and operational characteristics of vehicles. 1 Introduction Transport with its consumption of engine fuel of about 2 billion tons per year is one of the most important factors which determine the state of the world economy and, as a consequence, geopolitics. The most important problems facing humanity in this connection are the problems of environmental
