Abstract: Biodiesel is explored as one of the promising fuel alternative to diesel. Most of the biodiesel production comes from first generation feedstocks like edible oils. Nowadays, nonedible oils are getting much attention as potential second generation tree borne oil feedstock. In this regard, the present investigation focusses on preparation of biodiesel from non edible simarouba oil with NaOH and Conc. H2SO4 as catalyst using methanol. The simarouba biodiesel is blended with diesel by 5 % and 20% on volume basis. The fuel properties of simarouba biodiesel blends B5 and B20 were estimated using standard methods and matched with ASTM standards. The SB5 and SB20 biodiesel blends were experimented on CI engine at injection pressure (IP) of 200 bar and 250 bar for improved performance and reduced emissions
