Abstract

In Malaysia, interest on motorcycles as the main choice of transport for works has increased recently, mainly due to the increasing fuel price. The majority of the motorcycles, especially those with cubic capacity less than 250cc, are equipped with the conventional carburettor system. Small gasoline fuelled engines operating using carburettor system, however, suffers from low operating efficiency, apart from producing hazardous emissions to the environment. In light of this situation, the current project will attempt to develop a retrofit fuel injection kit to address such challenges of meeting power requirement as a small cubic capacity prime mover and also in complying with the emissions regulations currently put in place. The experimental works on the proposed fuel injection retrofit kit is initiated by preparing a dedicated engine test rig equipped with the necessary instrumentation, which will allow analysis on the engine operating performance. Among the parameters to be investigated are engine torque, brake power, specific fuel consumption and engine thermal efficiency. Throughout the work, other key operating parameters that will also be monitored are the emissions levels of the exhaust gas and operating consistency and durability. It is expected that at the end of this research, the developed prototype will be able to work effectively in providing efficient fuel supply to power the small gasoline fuelled engine.
