This paper investigates the utilization of Palm Oil Methyl Ester (PAM) blends with diesel in a compression ignition engine. The performance and combustion characteristics of 20% Palm Oil Methyl Ester and 80% Diesel and also with 10% Dimethoxymethane (DMM) have been studied and it was found that the blends could substitute for diesel and used as an alternate source for the future generation. The addition of additive Dimethoxymethane helps to decrease the carbon monoxide emission and opacity. The adverse effect oxide nitrogen increase due to the biodiesel blends is marginally reduced. It gives better brake thermal efficiency than biodiesel blends.
