The usage of alternate fuels has been a priority ever since the depletion of the conventional fuels. During the recent times the concept of using biodiesel as fuel has been predominant due to its ability to be used in the same engine as conventional fuels. The source of biodiesels are mainly non edible oils such as Jatropha and Pongamia. This paper reviews the properties of the alternate fuels when used in the compression-ignition engine. These alternate fuels used are vegetable oils and alcohols. The review compares the key properties of diesel to the alternate fuels used. The properties such as such as brake thermal efficiency, volumetric efficiency, exhaust gas temperature and smoke levels are compared with the values obtained from the usage of conventional diesel fuel in a low heat rejection engine (L.H.R) engine. apart from the properties there is also a need for the check of pollutants emitted during the processes, oxides of nitrogen from diesel fuel and aldehydes from the alternate fuels.

Keywords: Alternate fuels, Conventional fuels etc.
