Abstract Manente and coworkers  discovered that a fuel in the gasoline boiling range with 70 Octane Number (ON70) is applicable for Partially Premixed Combustion (PPC) over the complete load range without additional engine adaptations. Using such a fuel in combination with an appropriate dilution strategy was shown to simultaneously achieve low emissions and high efficiency without any drawback in combustion control. In the present paper the load range applicability of ON70 fuels in PPC is further investigated. To do so, four fuels in the ON70 range are selected, with different chemical and physical properties. The goal of testing these fuels is to achieve low emissions and high efficiency over the complete load range of PPC.
