Abstract Shortly after the formation of a Deposit Panel within the CRC Diesel Performance Group, the EMA approached the Panel and requested initiation of an urgent effort to evaluate the causes of a new internal injector deposit problem. The panel diverted attention to this issue and formed three sub-panels: Data Analysis and Recommendation; Bench / Rig / Engine Investigation; Engine Investigation. The Bench / Rig / Engine Investigation Panel identified two potential rigs for evaluation. This program which required no CRC funding was conducted to determine if any of these rigs would discriminate among known deposit forming and non deposit forming fuels. This report provides a detail description of both rigs and the results obtained in each case using seven fuels in a statistically designed matrix. Being an initial scoping study, parameters such as additives, biodiesel, and impurities were not included.
