Gum Formation in Brazilian Gasoline

The slow oxidation of olefins in gasoline fuels is responsible for gum formation in storage tanks. High-molecular-mass oxidation products can become insoluble and form deposits in the storage tank. These deposits can impact the fuel combustion, injection pattern, and durability of the fuel line parts. In addition, they can significantly increase pollutant emissions. Consequently, it … Continue reading Gum Formation in Brazilian Gasoline
