Due to spacious applications of plastic e.g. its durability and strength, flexibility and lighter weight, consumption and production of plastic has been arise quickly. There are fortified gains to educe fuel oil form waste plastic. Researchers have formulated many feasible and simple processes to form the truncated chain-hydrocarbons liquid fuel from the plastic waste polymers. But plastics are non biodegradable in nature hence its disposal has become a major problem because it cannot be dispose off directly into the environment. To De-polymerize plastic waste into useful liquid and gaseous fuel product several technologies have been invented. One of the known process is pyrolysis in which Batch reactors are used and temperature ranges between 370 to 550 0C under atmospheric pressure. The aim of the work is to convert the mixed (selected) plastic waste into crude oil which can be use as hydrocarbons fuel. In the present paper waste plastic pyrolysis oil and its blend with diesel has been introduced as an alternative fuel. Waste plastic oil (W.P.O.) was tested as a fuel in a D.I. diesel engine and it is observed that the engine could operate with 100% waste plastic oil and can be used as fuel in diesel engines [3].
