The engine speed was varied from rpm to rpm with an increment of rpm.

Biodiesel, Diesel, Renewable fuel, Alternative fuel. Introduction. The esters of vegetable oils and animal fats are known collectively as. biodiesel, a renewable alternative fuel that has been shown to be direct replacement for diesel fuel in compression ignition engines. Biodiesel has an energy con-.
fuels in compression-ignition engines, using dual-fuel, gas-liquid operation strategy and contribute to research the problems in this topic with emphasis on fuel - flexible operation. Alternative fuels for internal combustion engines include a wide range of liquid and gaseous chemicals for both spark-ignition (SI) and compression-ignition (CI) applications. Alternative in this context describes a fuel that can be used in place of a conventional fuel . Compression ignition fuels are characterized by their cetane number with the higher the cetane number the lower the autoignition temperature and shorter ignition delay. Alternative CI engine fuels include biodiesel, which is composed of methyl esters and produced from vegetable oils and animal fats, green diesel produced in many different ways, and their blends, all with different advantages and disadvantages. Dimethyl ether (DME) is also an excellent diesel fuel with Volvo . Compression ignition engines can use a range of fuels, including standard diesel fuel, heavy fuel oils, biodiesel and vegetable oils. However, the engine performance depends heavily on the quality of the fuel.

Replacing spark-ignition engines with diesel engines and components would yield fuel savings of about 37 percent at an added cost of approximately $5, per vehicle, and replacing spark-ignition engines with hybrid engines and components would reduce fuel consumption by 43 percent at an increase of $6, per vehicle. As an alternative fuel for compression ignition engines, plant oils are in principle renewable and carbon-neutral. However, their use raises technical, economic and environmental issues. A comprehensive and up-to-date technical review of using both edible and non-edible plant oils (either pure or as blends with fossil diesel) in CI engines, based on comparisons with standard diesel fuel, has . Higher compression ratios yield more power in racing engines and street engines. Everyone remembers the anemic low-compression s and nobody wants to repeat them. Once the OEMs gained greater control over fuel and spark with EFI and electronic engine management, compression ratios shot up again because automakers know it makes more power and yields higher fuel efficiency.
