Jatropha oil, bio-fuels, transestrification, exhaust gas.


Biomass derived from vegetables oils are quite promising alternative fuels for agricultural diesel engines. The performance of vegetable oils can be improved by modifying them through the transestrification process. The fuel properties of biodiesel such as kinematic viscosity, calorific value, flash point, carbon residues and specific gravity were found. Results indicated that B20 has closer performance to diesel and highest brake thermal efficiency was obtained for blend B20 with 31.86 mainly due to its high viscosity compared to diesel. For Jatropha biodiesel and its blended fuels, the exhaust gas temperature increased with increase in power and amount of biodiesel. But, diesel blends showed reasonable efficiency, lower smoke, CO2, CO.
