    Could you take a look at this?

    "Work with different fuels: gasoline, natural gas, biogas, ethanol, propane, mixtures of gasoline and diesel at the authors' Future Power Systems Group in Birmingham University reveals great potential for the use of moderate compression engines."

    Could "work with different fuels..." be translated as "research on different fuels..." ? Does "work with" mean "work on" ?

    Thanks!

    As it's a university, I would assume that it is research.

    Thanks,

    Could you take a look at this one? :

    The HCCI ignition and combustion processes are mainly driven by chemical kinetics of hydrocarbon oxidation chemistry.

    HCCI stands for - Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition

    I don't get it... it makes no sense... especially the beginning of it and its end... (chemistry ?!)

    hmm... but how come there's "work" and not "works" ? something like "works on... blah blah blah"

    I hope it makes sense now.
