Engine Demonstration

The objective of this work package is to demonstrate a medium-scale fleet in Austria, France, Poland and Germany to run for up to 22 months on 2nd generation vegetable oil and to achieve a good engine performance and very low emission levels.
Good engine performance will be considered to be achieved and indicated if the tractor’s electronic engine control system shows zero failure on the original John Deere service advisor.
The stable combustion and emission quality will be considered to be achieved if the monitored level of engine oil does not grow within the respective maintenance intervals. The target of maintenance interval for engine oil change and fuel filter change is 250 hours which will be proven by an engine oil analysis.
