Abstract

The physicochemical properties of C-type regular gasoline with 30, 60, 90, and 120 days of storage were evaluated. Tests were conducted with different storage conditions, in the presence of metallic catalyst and ethyl alcohol, simulating vehicle use conditions. A kinetic model for gum formation was developed through the UV-visible absorption spectroscopy for the conditions of the analyzed samples. The effect of the aging period on fuel properties and the storage condition that most contributes to accelerate gum formation were described. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2006).
