Evaluation of pure rapeseed oil as a renewable fuel for agricultural machinery based on emission characteristics and long‑term operation behaviour of a fleet of 18 tractors - Research Article

The usage of locally produced pure rapeseed oil fuel (R100) according to fuel standard DIN 51605 in agricultural machinery
can contribute to protecting the climate, water, and soil. Besides economic aspects, uncertainties concerning the long-term
operation reliability and limited exhaust emissions of R100-operated agricultural machinery are hindering market entry.
Thus, the aim of this research is to evaluate field experiences, such as downtimes and repairs, engine oil quality, and cold
start behaviour, over a total period of more than 50,000 operation hours with 18 tractors.
