The primary objective of this project was to study the effect of Groundnut Oil based Biodiesel on a CI engine operating at a constant speed under a range of loads. Biodiesel is being considered nowadays as an alternative to Petro-diesel, with advantages in favor of Biodiesel being it’s lowered emissions and performance comparable to diesel. This experiment was done by synthesizing Biodiesel from Groundnut oil and mixing it in different ratios with diesel to run a Single Cylinder Field Marshall Diesel engine and thereby obtaining the different performance and emission characteristics for the Biodiesel.
