Albocarbon is an aromatic hydrocarbon solid compound. It has distinguishing odor with white crystalline structure. Most of Albocarbon today is produced from coal tar and used in paints, explosives, solvent and the most popular use as expeller of moths. In this research, Albocarbon had been examined to be as Fuel Enhancer for Otto engines. Four samples of the mixture of gasoline with Albocarbon as additive have been prepared, first is the control which was pure gasoline and the three others were different percentage of Albocarbon to the total mixture. In terms of chemical interaction, two methods have been used for identification of chemical compounds. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) which is identified the functional group in the samples and the second is gas chromatography with mass spectrometry (GC-Mass) to measure the total ions in the samples. The effects of the addition on the mechanical characteristics have been tested using single cylinder four-stroke gasoline engine with hydraulic dynamometer. It has been proved that the adding of Albocarbon increases the Octane number and increases the total energy obtained from the fuel. However, these increments have a limit in their values and excess added may leads to fixed enchantment with more harmful precipitations.
