Low Level of Kerosene Adulteration in Petrol Studied by Fiber Optics

The smallest amount of kerosene in petrol can have a negative impact on the operation of a vehicle engine. This paper develops a simple, low-cost, sensitive, and miniature sensor based on a fiber optic coupler and an optoelectronic detection system. The sensor has been modeled and tested. It has been discovered that the current sensor is only capable of detecting less than 5% of kerosene adulteration in gasoline. It is capable of detecting 1% variation in adulteration. The sensor’s size is measured in micrometers.
