Heavy and light distillate fuel oils and natural gas were compared during this emissions test. As expected, the emissions using natural gas were normally much less than with No. 2 oil. The noteworthy differences of this test relate to the two distillate oils. There were no significant differences between the emission levels of NOx, CO, or unburned hydrocarbons for the two. Using the heavy distillate oil, there were higher SO2 emissions (which is in agreement with the fuel sulfur levels), lower smoke levels, and higher particulate levels than with No. 2 oil.
