Biodiesel, the methyl ester of vegetable oil is a renewable, low environmental impact and potential as a green alternative fuel for diesel engine. High oil prices and growing concerns over climate change are driving investment and innovation in the biofuels sector as countries and industry increasingly look towards renewable bioenergy to replace fossil fuels. This study examines fuel properties, performance and exhaust emission of a diesel engine fuelled with three different biodiesel mixtures (i.e, Jatropha, Rice bran and Soybean oils) and their blends with diesel fuel. The results indicate that the calorific value of the blends decrease with an increase in concentration of three biodiesel in the blends. The brake thermal efficiency of diesel fuel is found to be higher, when compared to biodiesel blends. Biodiesel blends gives lower CO and NOx than diesel fuel operation.
