High ether percentage = increased cetane number in fuel (better auto ignition). It means the tiny model diesel engine make it easier to start up and run. Hence the tiny model diesel engine do not generate so much heat of compression as the large model diesel engine can do it when starting the tiny model diesel engine. Here are the article about Nano 0,1 cc where it's wrote here: "Also, the fuel for mini diesels needs a lot of ether - as high as 50% by volume". in this link Building The "Nano" Miniture IC CI Model EngineCan you tell me if you used high Ether percentage fuel?
You can get the ether from John Deere start fluid, remove the propelant gas before empty ether in the sealed bootle to later use to example mix own fuel.
