ABSTRACT
Biodiesel is an environmentally friend renewable diesel fuel alternative. A single cylinder direct injection diesel engine was first run with diesel fuel and then with blends of biodiesel based palm oil. The performance and emission characteristics of the engine run with both the fuel have been compared and the results obtained are shown in this paper. From the results obtained, it is understood that the thermal efficiency is slightly less and the specific fuel consumption is slightly higher with biodiesel when compared with Diesel. This is due to the lower calorific value of the biodiesel. It is concluded that the biodiesel can be used as alternative fuel in the Diesel engine without any engine modifications.
