An experimental analysis was made to evaluate the performance, emission characteristics of a diesel engine using blend (B15) of methyl ester of karanja with diesel. The main aim of the present work is to carry out an experimental evaluation of single cylinder diesel engine by adding 5%, 10% and 15% of ethanol with B15 biodiesel. Experiments were tested with different load conditions in terms of brake power at a constant speed of 1500 rpm. The performance parameters were found to be extremely close to that of diesel. The brake thermal efficiency and mechanical efficiency were superior to mineral diesel for some particular blending ratios under certain loads. The emission characteristics were also studied and levels of carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitric oxide and hydrocarbons were found to be a little higher than pure diesel.
