ABSTRACT
The present paper investigates the performance and combustion characteristic of single cylinder, natu-rally aspirated, water cooled, DI diesel engine running on karanja oil (K100) and blends with diesel K10, K15, and K20 and the experimental results were compared with that of diesel. The results showed that the fuel properties of K100, density, viscosity, flash point and carbon residue were found to be higher than that of diesel and calorific value is lower than that of diesel. Based on performance and combustion characteristics of the various blends, the optimum blend was found to be K15.
