This paper investigates the engine performance and emission characteristics of the biodiesels synthesised from papaya seed oil (PSO), stone fruit kernel oil (SFO) blends using a diesel engine. All experiments were carried out at full load condition with different engine speeds ranging from 1200 rpm to 2400 rpm at an interval of 200 rpm. Diesel (100%) and its four blends such as 10% biodiesel with 90% diesel (PSO10, SFO10), and 20% biodiesel with 80% diesel (PSO20, SFO20) were considered for comparative analysis. Engine performance results showed that the SFO biodiesel blends differed marginally (0.6% Brake Power (BP), 0.3% torque, 3% Brake thermal efficiency (BTE) and 2.3% Brake specific fuel consumption (BSFC) from PSO biodiesel blends. However, SFO biodiesel blends produced higher exhaust emissions than PSO biodiesel blends, in the order of 2.1%NOx, 3%PM, 10.1%HC, 5.4%CO2, and 13.3%CO. Both biodiesel blends produced considerably reduced emissions of PM (max. 34%), HC (max. 33%), and CO (max. 31%) as compared to diesel, while a slight in NOx (max. 6.8%) and CO2 (max. 8.7%) was observed. These results demonstrate that both SFO and PSO could be effectively used in a diesel engine without any modifications. © 2019 IEEE.
