In many countries biodiesel found suitable alternative fuel as it is environment friendly. Although straight vegetable oils can be used in diesel engines, their high viscosities, low volatilities and poor cold flow properties have led to the investigation of various derivatives. An experimental investigation has been conducted on single cylinder diesel engine fueled with blends of Mahua and diesel. Five concentrations of biodiesel is taken for investigation and the engine performance characteristics has been studies under different loading conditions. The biodiesel with concentration of 20% is found suitable among all blends of biodiesel and pure diesel.

Keywords: Biodiesel; Performance; CI Engine; Mahua oil; Break power.
