The need of the day is search for the alternate fuel such as bio diesel. Biodiesels have different properties to pure diesel especially higher viscosity. This research studied the effect of using biodiesel and additive on engine performance and emissions. Pure diesel and biodiesel (MOME) blends with additive (DMC). Mahua Oil Methyl Ester (MOME) with Di Methyl Carbonate (DMC) is promising fuel combination to reduce emissions in DI diesel engine due to high oxygen content of the additive as well as the oxygen content of neat bio diesel. DMC is special solvent to most of the methyl esters of vegetable oil. The blends of MOME with 6% DMC is observed to yield maximum thermal efficiency at full load. DMC and MOME blends have fewer effects on NOX emission because of surplus molecular oxygen available. HC, CO and Smoke were considerably reduced.
