Abstract

Since recent past world researchers are in a quest to find the best possible alternative fuel to cater for the uprising global energy demand and to find a solution for the most threatening issue of 21st century, Global warming. In these circumstances, natural gas can play a vital role since it is considered as the cleanest fossil fuel which consists of high energy conversion efficiencies. This paper will investigate extensively, the usage of natural gas as an alternative fuel in both spark-ignition and compressed-ignition engines and will further discuss, why it is a promising alternative fuel for automotive applications in Sri Lanka.
