    Abstract

    Energy crysis is now being faced by all people. This due to the dependence of humanbeings upon the fuel in order to ease and accelerate their activities. Consequently, there are many queues for fuels at many SPBUs in Indonesia everyday. Use of an environmentally combustion air filter technology that utilizes abundant natural resources, especially in Lampung province, namely coconut shell charcoal that has an ability to adsorb water vapor in combustion air, is capable to cope with this crysis. This charcoal was firstly made into powder before modifying it into pellet of 5 and 10 mm in diameter, with 3 mm in thickness. Experiments were performed to observe fuel consumption of a 4-stroke petrol motorcycle at road test of 5 kph for 5 km, and stasionary test of 1500, 2500, and 4000 rpm, as well as its acceleration at 0-80 and 40-80 km/h. All tests were performed for 35, 40, and 45 gram coconut shell charcoal. Results show use of this charcoal could reduce fuel consumption up to 24.36% at road test, and 29.30% at stasionary test of 4000 rpm. The increase of acceleration also occurred for about 13% at 0-80 km/h, and 20.69% at 40-80 km/h. Keywords: Oxygen–rich combustion, Coconut shell charcoal adsorbent, Combustion air treatment.
