Abstract

One of the alternative energies that can be used in an Otto engine as gasoline replacement is Bioethanol fuel. Bioethanol has been developed in Indonesia and is generally made from raw materials of starch plants, namely corn, cassava, tubers, and sugar cane. The engine performance can be affected by the utilization of pure Bioethanol or Bioethanol-Gasoline blends. It is caused by the characteristic of Bioethanol as a natural product and the volume percentage ratio of the mixture. This study aims to determine the effect of Oxygenated Cyclooctanol additive on Bioethanol-Gasoline blends to the Motor Makara's Specific Fuel Consumption (SFC) and coefficient of variation (COY). Tests are occurred using an engine dynamometer to measure engine performance. Based on results, E10 mixture with the addition of 1.3% Cyclooctanol additive produces the most economical specific fuel consumption value and the lowest COY value when compared with the pure E10 mixture, E10 + 0.3% Cyclooctanol, and E10 + 0.5% Cyclooctanol. The experimental test showed that the addition of additives to bioethanol fuel could improve Motor Makara's performance.
