Experimental Investigation PF Thermophysical Properties of Crude Palm Oil as Engine Oil

Authors(3) :-Sk Salman Basha, MVS Pavan Kumar, VVS Nageswararao

Crude palm oil (CPO) is one of the vegetable oil cheaply available in the Andhra Pradesh region in India. It is mainly used as a vegetable oil in cooking purposes. It has potential to use as engine oil in IC engines. In this paper, we investigated crude palm as engine oil in 4 Stroke motorbike instead of commercially available engine oil in the market and the results shows that the thermal properties are nearly same that of engine oil and it can be used as engine oil in automobiles.
