Diesel Performance Specialties - Water Methanol Systems
Being a thermodynamicist, the designer of the diesel engine, Rudolf Diesel, had water injection as part of his first engine patent! He understood that if more heat of combustion could be used for work (torque) rather than having it just go out the tail pipe, more power could be generated with the same amount of fuel. How does it work? A fine mist of water or water-methanol is injected into the intake of the diesel after the turbo and intercooler but before the intake manifold. As these very fine droplets change state from a liquid to a gas during combustion, more power is developed from the same amount of diesel fuel. Methanol acts as a fuel and the water adds power through the "steam" effect and significantly reduces EGTs. The result is higher combustion efficiency which yields increased fuel economy, increased torque and HP, and decreased exhaust gas temperatures.
