Experiments were carried out on a diesel engine operating on diesel, bio-diesel and bio-diesel blended with 1- octanol. The blended fuels are prepared with 10%, 20%, and 30% of 1-octanolby volume. The experiments were conducted in a single cylinder C. I engine under five engine load conditions at a speed of 1500 rpm. The engine performance and emission characteristics were determined and compared. The results shows that the blending of 1- octanol seen to be a promising alternative additive with bio-diesel for improving emission characteristics and engine performance.
