Rising energy demands in the developing countries and increased consumption of fossil fuels are leading to depletion of fossil fuels at a rapid rate. Various alternatives such as vegetable oils, bio-gas and methanol, and ethanol are therefore investigated by researchers to come up with alternative fuel solutions. Sesame oil is one of the capable alternative fuels for Diesel engines. Sesame oil is a non-traditional, non-toxic, low-cost, low-grade vegetable oil that can be produced locally using agricultural and plant resources. Bio-diesel is made from oils or fats by the trans-esterification process. In this paper we have discussed how sesame oil can be used as a bio-diesel as an alternative for diesel. In the present work two blends of sesame oil bio-diesel have been prepared and performance analysis of these two blends are studied experimentally by using CRDI VCR Engine set up. Finally these performance parameters are compared with that of the regular diesel. The results showed that maximum brake thermal efficiency is obtained for the blend B10 for the load of 12kg and the value is 30.55%. Maximum indicated thermal efficiency is obtained for the blend B10 for the load of 12kg and the value is 39.04%. Maximum CO emissions are obtained for the diesel for no load and the value is 0.026%. Maximum carbon dioxide emissions is obtained for the blend B20 for the load of 12kg and the value is 3.62%.
