Resum
Straight vegetable oils may be used as fuel in existing diesel engines. However, some precautions should be taken into account because some of their physicochemical properties must be adjusted through tem- perature control to ensure enhanced combustion, thus avoiding premature aging of the engine. Although it is well known that surface tension plays a prevalent role in the fuel atomization process which affects the combustion quality, there is lack of published information about its variation wi...
