本調査は1996年型国産乗用車のオクタン価要求値分布を把握することを目的とし, (株)石油産業技術研究所の依頼により実施された。試験はJPI-5S-6-94に準拠し, 低速法でのオクタン価要求値分布を正標準燃料および全沸点型標準燃料の計2種で, 試験車13車種58台を対象に実施した。統計処理は1995年度の調査結果のうち仕様変更なく引き続き販売されている12車種48台の結果を加えて行った。その結果, 正標準燃料における低速法オクタン価要求値分布は50%および90%充足率でそれぞれ91.4および93.6オクタンであった。これは前年度の50%充足率の値より0.2高く, 90%充足率の値より1.2オクタン低い値を示した。
The Sub-Committee of Octane Number Requirement (ONR) of The Japan Petroleum Institute conducted a 1996 ONR Survey to estimate the maximum ONR distributions for 1996 model cars on the road by use of maximum ONR data compiled from 106 test cars. The maximum ONR data were determined by means of the low speed test method using both Primary Reference Fuel (PRF) and a mixed-type of unleaded Full Boiling Range Reference Fuel (FBRRF). The results of the 1996 ONR Survey are summarized below, together with pertinent information on test cars, test fuels, test method for ONR measurement and calculation procedure for determining maximum ONR distribution.<br>The maximum ONR of the 106 test cars ranged from 85.5 to 96.0 RON(Research Octane Number). Using those data, maximum ONR distributions were calculated for 1996 model cars on the road.<br>The maximum ONR distributions for 1996 model cars on the road, determined by PRF, were 91.4 RON and 93.6 RON, at 50% and 90% car satisfaction levels, respectively. These ONR distributions for 1996 model cars were lower than those for 1995 model cars. The trends of ONR at 50% and 90% satisfaction levels have leveled-off for 5 years since 1992. Regarding maximum ONR distributions by engine displacement, the engines, in the range of 1650-2000cc, were prone to show the highest maximum ONR.<br>The ONR distributions at high speeds, in the range of 80-120km/h, determined by PRF, were 90.5 RON and 92.8 RON, at 50% and 90% car satisfaction levels, respectively. The high speed ONR distribution during the period 1992-1996 tended to increase. Difference between high and low speed ONR distributions has become to diminish. Also, distribution of engine speeds, at maximum ONR values, has shifted to a higher speed range, above 2050rpm.<br>The maximum ONR distribution for cars requiring premium gasoline, on the road, determined by PRF, were 96.2 RON and 97.7 RON, at 50% and 90% car satisfaction levels, respectively.
