An experimental study was conducted, to compare the powers outputs of pure diesel with different blends of Pyrolysis plastic oil and diesels. Waste plastic through thermal treatment can be derived into liquid fuel or waste plastic oil. Pyrolysis a thermo chemical process is being used as a technology to manage plastic wastes like, High-density polyethylene (HDPE). High density polythene (HDPE) is used in making oil containers, bottles, toys etc. Pyrolysis method is used to prepare Pyrolysis plastic oil from waste plastic oil. Single cylinder four stroke VCR (variable compression ratio) diesel engine is used for testing purpose. Testing of pure diesel is done for reference point. Blends of Diesel and Pyrolysis plastic oil (i.e., 90 and 10, 80 and 20, 70 and 30) were used in volumetric percentage. Fuels were tested at five different conditions of load in % (i.e., 0, 25, 50, 75 and 100). Engine powers were recorded for different fuels. The overall performance of all blends is very satisfactory. P20 has the most satisfactory data out of all blends in terms of indicated power and brake power. Pyrolysis plastic oil can be used as an alternate fuel to reserve the stocks of diesels. It provides same power output result as diesel when used in proportion to form blends with diesel
