Abstract: In this present study, the Performance, combustion and emission characteristics of rubber seed methyl ester-diesel blend (rubber seed oil methyl ester (20%) + diesel (80%)) were investigated by using diesel engine. Experiment trials were conducted at compression ratio 18:1. Experiments were conducted at constant speed of 1500 rpm and with minimum to maximum load conditions (0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%). The characteristics of rubber seed oil methyl ester diesel blend were compared with the characteristics of diesel-butanol blend and diesel. Performance characteristics of rubber seed oil methyl ester-diesel blend like Mechanical efficiency, volumetric efficiency, brake thermal efficiency, and brake specific fuel consumption, combustion characteristics like cylinder pressure with crank angle, gross heat release rate and mass of fuel burned, and emission characteristics like nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide unburned hydrocarbon and carbon dioxide were investigated.
