Ignition delay time of liquefied petroleum for vehicle (LGV) fuel was predicted in this research. The method was using a detailed kinetic model of oxidation and combustion of propane/n-butane mixture. The validation of the model used experimental data in shock tubes in the temperature range from 1300 K to 1500 K and the pressure range from 2.5 bar to 10 bar for pure propane and pure n-butane. Calculated results of ignition delay time using the model have good agreement with experimental results indicating that the model may be used for LGV fuel. Simulation results of the model of LGV fuel show that the ignition delay time is faster when the n-butane fraction in the fuel is higher. The switchover of the ignition delay time order among different compositions of the fuels takes place at the initial temperature of 1200 K for the equivalence ratios of 1 and the initial pressure of 10 bar.
