In this paper, we would like to review the compatibility to use vegetable oils as a blended fuel for CI Engines at different injection pressure & inlet air pressure. The main problem with the vegetable oils is that they have very high viscosity, which leads to injection problem in Diesel Engines. Various techniques are used to reduce the viscosity; one of its techniques is fuel blending. Commonly vegetable oils available are Jathropa, Linseed, Rapeseed, Mahua ,Palm oil etc. are blended with diesel fuel in constant speed single cylinder & subsequently showing its effects on performance and emission characteristics of diesel engine. The vegetable oil is blended with varying proportions like 10%, 20% and 30% with diesel fuel in the CI Engine and find most preferable & optimize combination of blend for diesel engines.
