Volkswagen Joins Model Fuels Consortium II

Green Car Congress

Volkswagen has joined the Model Fuels Consortium II (MFC-II) ( earlier post )—the first German automaker to do so.

Volkswagen is particularly interested in the Consortium’s focus on modeling the combustion of both traditional fuels and potential next generation blends with accurate chemistry.
