Diesel engines are used for automotive application because they have lower specific fuel consumption and superior efficiency compared to S.I engines. However in spite of these advantages NOx and smoke emissions from the diesel engines cause serious environmental problems. In the present work, biodiesel was produced from black sesame oil. In this present work, investigations were carried out to study the performance, emission and combustion characteristics of black sesme oil. The results were compared with diesel fuel, and the selected oil fuel blends. For this experiment a single cylinder, four stroke, water cooled diesel engine was used. Tests were carried out over entire range of engine operation at varying conditions of load. To increase the engine performance parameters and to decrease the exhaust gas emissions with increase biodiesel concentration. Additive to added the Ethanol. The blending percentage in the steps of 10%, 20%, 30% & 40%.
