Lean combustion of CNG has the advantage of high thermal efficiency and fewer pollutants than other fossil fuels. However, problems such as ignitability, cyclic variation and high THC emission were common at combustion leaner than equivalence ratio e0.7. The application of gas-jet ignition method to lean combustion was able to address such problems. This paper introduces the concept of gas-jet ignition method, which ensures ignitability at lean bulk equivalence ratio. Moreover, this method is applied to a real CNG engine. Results of engine performance experiment shows that two-stage injection method combined with gas-jet ignition has successfully widen the operating range of a CNG engine from low to high load at corresponding k0.17 to 1.1.
