ABSTRACT The availability of energy resources plays a vital role in the progress of a country. Over the last decades, there is an increase in the consumption of energy worldwide resulting in the depletion of fossil fuels. This necessitates dependency on other countries for energy resources. Therefore a renewable eco-friendly alternate fuel is replaced in place of fossil fuel which can be vegetable oils as a substitute fuel for diesel. Since oils are more viscous it cannot be used directly in CI engines without any engine modification. Thus a conversion of vegetable oils to biodiesel is done by a Transesterification process. The present paper is restricted to Bio fuel substitute for diesel and which can be obtained from a number of edible and non-edible oil resources. The oil from the these resources can be Transesterified by suitable method depending on its FFA content for the production of biodiesel and that can be used to operate CI engine. In this work an attempt is made to test the performance of CI engine using Transesterified Niger oil methyl esters blends with diesel.
