Among the alternative fuels the Bio diesel is one the most common and familiar to all. It's biodegradable, environment friendly as well as suitable source, to meet the future energy crises. The main concern of this experimental analysis is to reach a tentative goal, how this fuel can be utilised with maximum effective way. To find this, an experiment data analysis of different parameter such as break power, break specific fuel consumption, emission characteristic(NOx, HC,CO. etc) and exhaust temperature, is done through bio diesel fuel and also compared with ordinary diesel which is also known as petro diesel. This investigation is carried out through eddy current dynamometer and load cell arrangement which is controlled by a computer in case of finding the break power and BSFC respectively. And the emission characteristics are observed using Bosch and Bacharach exhaust analyzers. And finally the result is compared with diesel engine which is run by ordinary diesel. The final result implied that the bio diesel with some additives (B20+1%) shows best performance and reduce the exhaust emission including NOx. Thus the decision may be taken, 20% blended bio diesel with 1% additive as a best alternative fuel considering all the view aspects and alternatives. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
