Due to the increasing demand for fossil fuels and environmental threat, a number of renewable sources of energy have been studied worldwide. An attempt is made to assess the suitability of vegetable oil for diesel engine operation, without any modifications in its existing construction. One of the important factors which influence the performance and emission of diesel engine is fuel injection pressure. The main objective of this study is to investigate the effect of Karanja Biodiesel blended with diesel and investigating performance and emissions characteristics of the engine. By changing the various parameters like Load, Blending Ratio, various performance and emission characteristics will be measured. Non edible Karanja (Pongamia Pinata ) biodiesel blended with diesel were tested for their use as substitute fuels for diesel engines. One of the major objectives of the present study was to experimentally access the practical applications of diesel & karanja biodiesel blend in single cylinder diesel engine used in generating sets, road transport vehicle, and three cylinder diesel engines used for agricultural applications in India.
