Despite the Global Automotive Roadmap adapted by our National Automotive Policy 2014 that charted towards electric vehicles in year 2030 and fuel-cell vehicles in 2040, diesel vehicles may still be relevant for transportation and logistics in our country. However, technology development must be made in order to move along or comply with the energy efficient vehicle guideline and the stringent exhaust emission standard. Moving towards the same direction, a concept of diesel-CNG dual fuel vehicle was materialized in a 2.5L common rail engine 4x4 pickup truck. The dual fuel vehicle has passed Puspakom inspection and approved by JPJ to be roadworthy. This talk will be a sharing session aimed at academicians, researchers, practicing engineers and to anyone who desires to know the fundamental concept, the research and development work, the experimental results, potential fuel cost savings, other benefits and challenges on the diesel-CNG dual fuel vehicle.
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mas Fawzi bin Mohd Ali received his Bachelor Degree in Electromechanical System Engineering from University of Manchester Institute Science and Technology (UMIST) in United Kingdom in 1997. In year 2004, after 6 years of industrial working experience in Sharp-Roxy Electronics Corporation, he shifted his career from engineer to an academician in Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). Then he pursue a Master Degree in Mechanical Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, by researching on gasoline direct fuel injection and graduated in 2007. After serving UTHM for 2 years as a lecturer, he went to the University of Tokushima, Japan to further his study in the field of gaseous fuel combustion and graduated with PhD in Earth And Life Environmental Engineering in 2012. He is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Energy and Thermo Fluid Engineering at the Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia. He is also holding a post as the Deputy Dean (Research, Development and Publication) in the Faculty of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering. Among of his research interests are in green technology, alternative fuels and combustion control.
