Abstract:
The use of alternative fuel has many advantages and the main ones are its renewability, biodegradability and better quality exhaust gas emission, which do not contribute to raise the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. The use of inedible vegetables oils as an alternative fuels for diesel engine is accelerated by the energy crisis due to depletion of resources and increase in environmental problems including the great need for edible oil as food and reduction of biodiesel production cost etc. lot of inedible vegetable oils which can be exploited for substitute fuel as diesel fuel. However there are many issues related to the use of vegetable oils in diesel engine that is high viscosity, low calorific value, high self-ignition temperature etc. Jatropha curcas has been promoted in India as a sustainable substitute to diesel fuel. This research prepared micro emulsions of ethanol and Jatropha vegetable oil in different ratio and find out the physical and chemical properties to compare with mineral diesel oil and compare the performance and emissions of single cylinder, air cool engine using and its micro emulsion of Jatropha vegetable oil with different percentage of ethanol and diesel fuels separately
