Today, India is facing two biggest problems, one is the depletion of the fossil fuel reservoir and the other is the pollution. These two problems motivated us, as well as many other researchers, to work on the utilization of non biodegradable material. Scrap tyre consists of organic matter, that is often disposed illegally in open lands, ultimately causing an environmental problem. Pyrolysis is considered as a useful technique, for recycling of scrap tyres by using which liquid, gases, carbon black and steel wires are obtained. Tire-derived oils can be used as fuel or added to conventional fuels, producing fuel blends with improved properties and reduced cost. Pyrolysis of scrap tyre starts at 250 °C and gets completed at 550 °C. The properties of the Tyre pyrolysis oil, was compared with the petroleum products and found that, it can also be used as a fuel for diesel engine. Experimental Investigations will examine the use of blended fuel (i.e., TPO with Pure Diesel), in different ratios in single cylinder, four stroke VCR diesel engines. Performance characteristics like Efficiencies and Powers were calculated at various loads conditions, at constant speed. It was found that, the blends of pyrolysis tire oil (TPO) of waste tire can efficiently be used in diesel engines, without any engine modifications
