This work deals with the performance study of a two wheeler using gasoline and different Ethanol-gasoline blends as fuel. The experiment is conducted on a two- wheeler chassis dynamometer, to determine the vehicle performance in terms of power, acceleration and fuel consumption. The performance is studied on Ethanol-Gasoline blends of various percentages ranging from 5-18 % Ethanol in Gasoline and Compared with the performance of the vehicle using 100 % gasoline. Also emission characteristics of the vehicle are determined for the vehicle operating on different ethanol-gasoline blends. The results show that the E8 and E16 Ethanol-Gasoline blends show a comparatively good performance compared with that of pure gasoline.
