With the rapid increase in consumption of fossil fuels and its high contribution to environmental pollution, researchers all over the world works to improve internal combustion enginesemission characteristics and reduce the consumption of fuel. The application of hydrogen or hydrogen-rich gas as fuel supplement for SI and CI engines is considered to be one of the most desirable methods to these problems. Hydrogen has many excellent combustion properties that can be used for improving hydrocarbon combustion and emissions performance of both SI and CI engines.
