Abstract: In today's world, the applications of diesel engines are gradually increased in the area of agricultural and especially in commercial vehicle sectors. The present scenario emphasises necessarily for the development of better techniques to improve the efficiency of the diesel engine and also the adverse effect of fossil fuels on the environment. The purpose of this work is to investigate the consequence of biodiesel blends with diesel on exhaust gas temperature and emission characteristics. In this work, the exhaust emissions and exhaust gas temperatures were measured in a four stroke, single cylinder, and constant speed diesel engine fuelled with Calophyllum inophyllum methyl ester (CIME) and its blends with diesel. The different blends such as B20, B40, B60 and B80 of CIME blends with diesel and B100 (CIME) and diesel (100%) were used for this test run. The test results of different blends were compared with diesel fuel and presented in this paper.

Keywords: Calophyllum inophyllum methyl ester; CIME; biodiesel; exhaust gas temperature; NOx; CO; HC; smoke; emission.
