Abstract: Alternative fuel is found broad utilization in compression ignition engines in terms of its decreased harmful exhaust emissions. In the present work, tri-fuels namely diesel, di-butyl ether and ethanol were blended in various proportions and the resultant fuel blends were validated through high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC). Eight different fuel proportions were experimentally validated with the chromatography by comparing with the diesel fuel. Qualitative analysis of various fuel blends such as retention factor, absorption unit, peak height and peak area were carried out depicting the variations in the migration distances and proportional concentrations of different individual components in the tri-fuel samples. The chromatogram resulted from the HPTLC were analyzed for its significance. The one-way ANOVA test was performed to check the formulated null and alternate hypothesis. The critical values for experimental wise error rate lies between 3.28 for the significance value of 5% to 3.80 for significance value of 1%.
