Murugu Mohan Kumar Kandasamy, Mohanraj Thangavelu, Rajamohan Ganesan


This paper discusses the performance characteristics of a single cylinder diesel engine using rice bran and pungam oil blended with diesel fuel. The experiments were carried out for the various blends i.e., B20, B40, B60, B80 and the results were compared with the neat diesel. The blended fuel is preheated before it is being injected to cylinder. The preheating ensures the enhancement of combustion efficiency and the over all performance of the engine.
