Abstract: An experimental investigation and a burning-rate analysis have been performed on a production 1.4 liter compressed natural gas (CNG) engine fueled with methane-hydrogen blends. The engine features a pent-roof combustion chamber, four valves per cylinder and a centrally located spark plug. The experimental tests have been carried out in order to quantify the cycle-to-cycle and the cylinder-to-cylinder combustion variation. Therefore, the engine has been equipped with four dedicated piezoelectric pressure transducers placed on each cylinder and located by the spark plug. At each test point, in-cylinder pressure, fuel consumption, induced air mass flow rate, pressure and temperature at different locations on the engine intake and exhaust systems as well as "engine-out" pollutant emissions have been measured. The signals related to engine operation have been acquired by means of a National Instruments PXI-DAQ system and software developed in-house. The acquired data have then been processed through a combustion diagnostic tool resulting from the integration of an original multizone thermodynamic model with a computer-aided-design (CAD) procedure for the evaluation of the burned-gas front geometry. The diagnostic tool allows the burning velocities to be computed. The tests have been performed over a wide range of engine speeds, loads and relative air-fuel ratios (up to the lean operation limit (LOL)). For stoichiometric operation, the addition of hydrogen to CNG has produced a brake-specific fuel consumption (bsfc) reduction ranging between 2 and 7% and a brake-specific total unburned hydrocarbons (bsTHC) decrease up to the 40%. These benefits have appeared to be even higher for lean mixtures. Hydrogen has shown to significantly enhance the combustion process, thus leading to a sensibly lower cycle-to-cycle variability. Hydrogen addition has generally resulted into extended operation up to relative air-to-fuel ratio (RAFR) = 1.8. Still, the LOL consistently varies depending on the considered cylinder
