The article presents the analysis of possible applications of Brown’s gas to the diesel engine running on oil. The paper also contains a review of experimental works. The selected fuel combinations are as follows: diesel fuel, diesel fuel and Brown’s gas, oil (rapeseed oil) and oil and Brown’s gas. Test results have shown that an additional supply of Brown’s gas to the engine results in a decrease in the amounts of carbon monoxide (CO) and smoke level; however it increases the total emission of nitrous oxides (NOx). The supply of Brown’s gas at low engine load increases comparative effective fuel consumption and reduces high efficiency. Nevertheless, these performance indicators tend to improve at average engine load.
