The present work is to study the performance and emission characteristics of single cylinder, direct injection diesel engine using coconut oil methyl ester (COME) and their blends with diesel in varying proportions. Experiments were conducted when the engine fueled with pure diesel, pure COME and the blends of diesel and COME by volume for full load range. The exhaust conditions were measured using exhaust gas analyzer similarly AVL smoke meter for measuring smoke density. Results were compared graphically in performance of the engine for specific fuel consumption, brake thermal efficiency, exhaust temperatures and in exhaust gases for concentrations of NOx and smoke density.
