Oil from Melon seed was extracted using methanol and converted to biodiesel by sodium methoxide catalyst at the reaction temperature of 600C for the duration of thirty minutes. The pacentage oil yield was 41%. The physicochemical parameters of the melon oil were found to be: specific gravity, saponification value, acid value, free fatty acid and pH were 0.92, 190.04 produced biodiesel : specific gravity and pH were found to be 0.885 and 7.53., and for the blends biodiesel (B and B70) are 0.806, 0.843 and 0.915, with pH of 7.85,7.82 and The fuel properties of the melon seed biodiesel compared with the conventional petrol diesel showed that
