Abstract
Dr. Tao`s viscosity theory is a university theory can be applied to a lot of liquid suspensions with the discrepancy in permittivity or permeability between the suspended contents and the base liquid. Diesel is a mixture and can be considered as one of these liquid suspensions. We ever got pretty good test results with diesel by the electric field treatment.. But, as we know, the "2007 Highway Rule" is taking effect for a while, that is, the allowable sulfur content for ULSD (15 ppm) is much lower than the previous U.S. on-highway standard for low sulfur diesel (LSD, 500 ppm). With Dr. Tao`s theory, if the effect is only from nanoscale sulfur aggregate, once the sulfur was taken off, the effect will be decreased or even disappear. But our laboratory test shows that ULSD has 28.7% flow rate increased after we successfully chosen an optimal field strength and an optimal treatment time, which is even higher than high sulfur diesel. This makes Dr. Tao`s Viscosity Theory can be widely used and proofed it is a nanoscale structure changing reduced the viscosity which can reduce pollution and improve engine efficacy, too.
