MAHLE is examining the resistance of components and materials when using fuel blends with e-fuels that can be admixed under current fuel standards as well as alternatives such as oxymethylene ether for heavy-duty commercial vehicles, dimethyl carbonate for passenger cars, or methane as a gaseous alternative.

Admixtures within the current fuel standards are especially promising due to their backward compatibility, as they include the existing global car population in CO2 reduction. The resulting lever is greater by a factor of about 20, given sufficient availability of regenerative fuel in Europe, than for measures that apply only to new vehicles. This potential should be considered as a supplement to electric mobility in the drive mix of the future.

Dr Otmar Scharrer, Head of Research and Advanced Engineering at MAHLE said that “The admixture of e-fuels can immediately produce great savings potential. If allowed, this could mean a decisive step toward achieving the 37.5 percent CO2 savings mandated at EU level relative to 2021. Our tests indicate that many of the MAHLE engine components and filters tested to date are ready for the admixture of e-fuels. We are providing our customers with the means to tap this potential.”
