Abstract: This research work is focused on the mustard oil based bio diesel which is important renewable and alternative fuel in future. Mustard oil, is a by-product of mustard plant seed processing, was used as a input for biodiesel production via transesterification. Diesel fuel is much higher use than any other gasoline fuels because diesel engines have many adaptable domestic uses like eg. small irrigation water pumping systems, light weight four/two seated auto cab and cars engine and small electricity generators etc. Mustard oil based bio diesel fuel properties are observed and tested in the fuel testing laboratory with standard procedure. It is found that mustard oil based bio-diesel that prepare in laboratory has slightly different properties than diesel fuel. Then an experimental set-up is construct to study the performance of a small kirloskar diesel engine in the internal combustion engine laboratory by using different blends (like B20, B30, B50 etc) of mustard oil based bio-diesel under different operating conditions .It is also observed that there is no difficulty found in running the small kirloskar diesel engine but,to determine the optimum performance of there should be a slight deviation in bio diesel blend. To avoid complicated specification in modification of the engine or the fuel injection system various blends of bio-diesel (B20, B30, B50 etc,) have beenused.My work has focused on the performance of Mustard oil based biodiesel and its blend with fossil diesel on a single cylinder, 4 stroke, naturally aspirated, direct injection, and water cooled, Kirloskar Diesel Engine at 1500 rpm with variable loads. Initially, for testing on diesel engine I have determined the physical and chemical properties of Mustard oil and its blend with fossil diesel. Because the viscosity of pure mustard oil is high and it can be reduced through mixing with fossil diesel and heating them. newline
