Lots of Tyre data Coefficient of rolling resistance, noise dB, wet grip ...

a paper regarding effects of ignition timing, air fuel ratio and ethanol on brake specific fuel consumption and torque. This is good if you have a scangauge 2 and wondering what to do with the IGN (ignition timing) during acceleration.

An old paper pushing old ideas, one by Ricardo that ethanol can be efficient, if you tinker enough with a gasoline engine designed & built to burn 100% gasoline(ethanol-free).

Well, the many hundreds of millions(more?) of gasoline engines, designed & built to burn 100% gasoline, are still at their best when burning 100% gasoline..... no tinkering or expensive or time consuming modifications need apply.

This is NOT rocket science, but it is good 100% gasoline engine science.

I saw the "Reduced Air Pollution ... with Pre-Heated Engines" paper mentioned in another thread, but it's no longer available through the link in the OP. If this is the same one, could the OP be updated? https://www.witpress.com/Secure/elib.../UT98035FU.pdf

Similarly, the "REDUCED COLD START EMISSIONS THROUGH USE OF ELECTRIC ENGINE HEATERS" paper can now be found here:
