Abstract: Alternative fuel sources are needed to be developed to meet the escalating demand for fossil fuels. Also from an environmental point of view, these most modern resources of fuels must be environment-friendly. The rapidly increasing consumption of fossil fuel and petroleum products has been a matter of concern for many countries which imports more crude oil. So, there is necessary for the development of new energy sources. The biomass, edible oil, inedible oils from plants and fish fat oil are imperatives and seen to be a potential substitute for diesel fuel. Acid and Base catalyzed transesterification is the most acceptable process for biodiesel production. In this project, an attempt towards finding the effect of alternate fuels as a substitute over diesel and reduce its consumption to lessen the environmental effects. Biodiesel has been extensively used in diesel engines as a partial substitute in the past few decades. The present investigation is carried out with blending up fish oil biodiesel with diesel in varying proportions to test out the emission and performance characteristics of direct injection single cylinder, four strokes, and air-cooled diesel engine. The fish oil biodiesel was produced by the transesterification process and obtained fish oil biodiesel blended with diesel fuel with various propagations of B20, B50, B75 & B100. These blended fuels were further investigated in a diesel engine with variable speeds such as 1000rpm, 1250rpm, 1500rpm, 1720rpm, 2000rpm 2250rpm & 2500rpm. In this comparative study, the effects of fish oil biodiesel fuel blends are compared and evaluated with pure diesel.
